This post may help if you want more info about UAE esp. Dubai:
I am starting nursing school and have the travel bug too. I have in-laws in Beirut Lebanon so I will probably check out the American University of Beirut Hospital - its a teaching hospital. I love it there so thats where I wanna go.
I would think Dubai to be very exciting to go to! If you like Miami style heat and plenty of nightlife and shopping, it would be fun! A lot of foreigners work there so you can meet people from all over the world.
