Browse through stands with traditional pointed boots, caps, furs, and spices at Naran Tuul Market, Ulaanbaatar’s open-air market for clothes and accessories in the east part of town. You can get some traditional jackets, handcrafted footwear, Soviet coins, cashmere, and saddles, as well as browsing through the carpet section in the closed part of the market. Also known as the "Black Market," many nomads come here to trade material supplies. Immerse yourself in a real, down-to-earth Mongolian experience, but beware of pickpockets. You can bring home some distinctive memorabilia from this market located some 40 minutes by foot from the city center.

  • Besides cheap bargain shopping, travelers, who are going to countryside, should not miss that there is rural bus stop in the outside parking lot, on the east. East bound and west bound rural buses, usually mini buses, pick locals over there. Directions are written on paper in Cyrillic Mongolian on the front windshield of the vehicle.
  • Cool local market where you can buy anything for the daily life. I went there to get a pair of boots for horse riding. I paid 50 000 Tugrik for a cheap pair of boots. Starting from 100 000 you get the nice ones. There are not many souveniers but traditional clothes and things like that can be found.
  • good place for bargain huting
