    There's a sign inside Mary & Martha's which says it's Christmas 365 days a year at the shop. I couldn't agree more. I bought a glass Angel and it will fit very nicely on my Christmas tree come Dec. Th...  more »

    This is a wonderful, ethical and fair trade shop. Everything is made in Mongolia and the artists are acknowledged by name in all the signs. However, most ethical and fair trade goods are boring and sc...  more »

    Wife and I really enjoyed this shop. Great stuff, reasonably priced with a good "back story" of responsible trade. We picked up several nice felt and cotton items here. Highly recommend.

    Vast variety of traditional products. If you're only a couple of days in UB, this is a must visit.

    Great place for souvenirs! All fair trade but still good prices and there are lots of small gifts that are easy to take home in your suitcase.

    Great selection of handmade items including socks, handbags, scarves, sweaters, pillow covers, and lots of other things. Staff members are very helpful and speak excellent English. Their hours are 10:30-6, at least in the winter.

Where to stay in Ulaanbaatar

The capital city of Ulaanbaatar doesn't disappoint when it comes to its choice of accommodations, with a range of styles and types to choose from. The usual place to look lies to the northeast of the main train station, in the central district that surrounds Chinggis Khaan Square. Luxury and non-luxury chain hotels, some storied older hotels, and a variety of fairly standard options abound across this central district, close to the main urban attractions. Dotted throughout are a number of guesthouses, providing value for money mid-range and budget options, including some offering shared "gers" (traditional Mongolian sleeping tents).
