About Dubai: Resting on the shores of the Persian Gulf, Dubai is fast creating a name for itself in the travel industry. Within the last 25 years it has undergone a dramatic transformation from a city of sand to a city of soaring skyscrapers. Dubai contains notable attractions such as Burj Khalifa (the world’s tallest building), as well as Dubailand, which, once opened, will be like Walt Disney World on steroids. Dubai’s weather can range from sweltering during the months of July and August to comfortable temperatures (low- to mid-70s) in January and February.
