Dubai (Arabic: دبيّ Dubayy) is a race track in the Asphalt series; in real life, it is the largest city of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Asphalt Urban GT 2
The track having the most twisty curves in the gameplay. Players there need to face a half-hairpin connects to the harbour with a straightaway, then a “M” curve located at the centre straight to another straightaway connects to a hairpin with a shortcut at the factory area. After all, run through another hairpin at the city centre and straight to the finish line after passing a viaduct.
Asphalt 4: Elite Racing
The track starts at a straightaway located at the harbour. Then a C curve and a S bend located at the old town area. A short straightaway with a small hairpin seen at the end of the area that lends to a S bend with a mid size curve at the New District area. Cross the finish line after passing through a flatern S bend with a 90 curve on the left.

Dubai was added in its namesake update and has four race track variants:
- Dubai – Regular track. Reverse version is called Dubai Reverse. Gate Drift is accessible on Dubai Reverse.
- The Rose of the Desert – A version of the track without ramps and different placements of nitro bottles. Reverse version is called The Mirage.
On the regular versions of the track (Dubai & Dubai Reverse), a barrel ramp can be used to jump across the body of water for the fastest route possible. On the alternate versions of the track (The Rose of the Desert & The Mirage), the split path that starts/ends with a sharp corner gives the faster route.
In cases where a vehicle with weak handling has to be used, the longer aquarium route can be used to reach the barrel ramp / shorter route unless the player is skilled in utilizing the drifting mechanics of the game.
Vehicles with excellent handling, drift radius and acceleration are recommended for the track's multiple tight corners and short length.
The Dubai track depicts many of Dubai's real life landmarks, including Atlantis, the Palm luxury hotel resort, Dubai Marina, Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, Aladdin Hotel, Burj Khalifa, and Sheikh Zayed Road.
The Dubai tracks are 2.593 mi (4.173 km) long, making them the shortest tracks in the game.

- There are no variations in time of day on this track, regardless of the selected track variant.
- Dubai has billboards scattered across the city that advertise cars, including the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 2013, W Motors Lykan HyperSport, and McLaren P1™.
- In real life, Atlantis, The Palm's luxury hotel resort is not located anywhere in close proximity to the Burj Khalifa as it appears in the game, or even on Dubai's mainland for that matter. The resort is actually situated on the apex of its own island which is 16.652 mi (26.798 km) away from the world's current tallest building.
- While the in-game Alps features avalanches as a weather effect that is interactive to the track, the in-game Dubai does not have any active dust storms despite the presence of one that can be seen far off in the distance, especially either via one of the pre-race intros or post-race camera footage.
