  • 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.
