Any idea what it is? Looks like some Asia-focused travel Web site.

Nice find. I had a look at the site and it only has this logo up at the moment



I'm guessing it must be legitimate as it is using AOL name servers and the contact is a Turner email address.

Maybe it has something to do with China? Its editor lives in Shanghai and she's also "city editor". CNN.com has launched a weekly chinese news bulletin as well...

It also mentions the revamp of the other CNN websites that we're expecting. Reading that article sounds like it is more just a ploy to get money from advertisers. We'll see how CNNgo develops.

It took them a little while, but they eventually got a press release out the other day. It reads, in part...

CNNGo is the ultimate insider guide for Asia's greatest cities. Set to be the definitive, indispensable city lifestyle resource, it harnesses the unrivalled experience, integrity and excellence of the CNN brand in a unique digital destination.

Updated dozens of times throughout the day, CNNGo initially focuses on six cities -- Bangkok, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Shanghai, Singapore, and Tokyo -- with more to be added in the coming months.

For the most discerning local, the cultural voyeur and the visitor (travelling for business or pleasure) alike, CNNGo compiles the best each city has to offer, often dishing up the unexpected and opening up these cities like never before.

While the convenient Eat, Shop, Sleep, Drink and Play sections cover the essentials, like places to go, things to see, must-do events, hidden gems or city secrets -- the site goes beyond that to provide real insight and experiences of these cities and their surrounds.

Importantly, the CNNGo content is provided by insiders. The editorial management team is based in Hong Kong and each city section is run by locally-based City Editors whose on-the-ground expertise and insider knowledge is unsurpassed. They in turn work with local professional writers, journalists, video/photographers, bloggers and more -- the very people that form the soul of a city. The site also reaches out to CNN's vast resources of regional anchors and correspondents.

Video and other multimedia are a key constituent of this site, and combined with the frequency of daily content updates, provide plenty of reasons to make this site a daily visit. Access daily and weekly newsletters for each city and the region, in addition to substantial compatibility across social networking platforms, allowing users to send details of favorite destinations to their PDA, blog and more.

CNNgo has some good articles online. I can't wait until they expand to other cities in the region.

This is undoubtedly one of the best CNN websites. Very informative, great for travelers.
Sad thing is it mostly limits itself to Asian stories.

I remember reading somewhere that they were going to expand to our destinations eventually. I hope that's still the case, because I really like reading the articles on CNNgo as well.

I have to agree. I really enjoy browsing the site and reading some of the articles. It would be nice to see it branch out to other destinations. I believe I read that they were planning on doing that eventually.

Yes Leeroy I really enjoy browsing the site too. It's a great to read when you have a little downtime. I too am looking forward to them expanding into other regions one day. I think the whole CNNgo.com would be one of the most visited travel sites if it covered a lot of other destinations.
