  • More local users, whatever. Beer and grocery store on the first floor here at enough foodstuffs, 持帰ru in hotels, and Dole souvenir was raised here. The tourist souvenir shops is located on the upper floor, clean a lot of popular tourist souvenirs. During your stay and visit several times, has been a boon. Grace, according to the Guidebook, before the shop Sri often has become there is dangerous and store front parking, not at all, also on the trail of the previous events were held, was not a dangerous atmosphere.

  • The State Department Store is an institution - a must-visit for any traveler. It comprises six floors of Mongoliana, including fur hats, wolf skins, camping gear, cashmere and yak textiles, and leathe...  more »
  • 除了樓頂的紀念品店一定要逛逛,一樓的超市有各色食物、種類齊全,尤其是價格比機場的免稅機場還便宜很多喔!煩躁的部分是結帳排隊比較沒秩序,但蒙古人似乎不以為意。

  • A good place for tourists to start their shopping. It has almost everything you need to get started. Top floor is where you will find the cellular service providers for your local sim card. Bottom floor has the grocery store. In between is mostly clothes etc. Good place overall!
  • You get what you need here. Especially in winter, grab a hat, scarf and gloves for the negative twenty degrees centigrade in December. It is not cheap though as the SDS, that's what the locals call it, is the symbol of Western shopping in UB.
  • Not air conditioned so it's super hot during summer. There are many branded stores and sometimes they have decent sales. For foreigners looking to buy mongolian cashmere and wool products, this is the place to go to as it's located in the city center and they have a bunch of different cashmere brands at one location.
  • Here you can find almost everything you need. Maybe the most complete mall in Ulan-Bator.
  • Good selection of local merchandise great for gifts to take home as souvenirs. Good selection of cashmere products and all the normal department store goods.
