If you can arrange it, Dubai is a great place for long layovers between long-haul flights.Dubai sits in desert country but that's part of its appeal. Temperatures had already reached 91 degrees Fahrenheit at 5 a.m. on a mid-September day as my plane arrived in Dubai from Johannesburg.Here are a few suggestions for things to see and places to go while pausing in Dubai:It's the world's tallest structure at 2,717 feet (828 meters), making it nearly twice as tall as New York's Empire State Building. The building was completed in 2010 and houses a luxury hotel, residential apartments, corporate offices and suites.
