  • The biggest open market in UB, this place sells everything. Yurts to Hello kitty clothes you can buy it here. Its a great place for a wander if your a tourist, just keep your wallet safe!
  • A lot of different stuff at good prices. Nice to stroll around, but I was told to watch your wallet.
  • 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.
  • So many stalls with so many things to buy. You could just shop here all year around.
  • 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.
