Naran Tuul Market, Ulaanbaatar

3.7
#5 of 10 in Shopping in Mongolia
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.

  • A place you can find anything you need. There are all imported and locally made products on sale. However there is a high risk of pickpocketing there.
  • One of the first, Biggest, oldest market so far. You could find almost everythings. Cheaper. Good luck 👍👏😀
  • Huge opportunities to buy whatever you need at a very cheap price. However, most is "Made in China", so beware of quality
  • They sell almost the same thing each stalls... Unless you travel to Mongolia with little in your bag, this place is okay to do last minute cheap shopping. Make sure to bargain before purchase.
  • I guess you can get pretty much everything spendiert enough time.
