Trip Planner Asia  /  Mongolia  /  Ulaanbaatar
(4.1/5 based on 5,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, museums, nature
The capital and largest city in the country, Ulaanbaatar stands as Mongolia's transport, cultural, and commercial hub. With important historical and religious sites sitting alongside towering modern malls and stylish restaurants, Ulaanbaatar combines the old and the new, the spiritual and the commercial, the hedonistic and the traditional across its vast area. A venture out to discover the capital's nightlife shows this with particular clarity, with traditional theater performances and Western club nights providing real variety for visitors and residents alike. Visits to Buddhist monasteries and temples represent some of the main things to do in Ulaanbaatar, while the city, country, and region's history can be discovered at a number of national museums. Make your own Ulaanbaatar vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Mongolia itinerary maker.

Where to stay in Ulaanbaatar

The capital city of Ulaanbaatar doesn't disappoint when it comes to its choice of accommodations, with a range of styles and types to choose from. The usual place to look lies to the northeast of the main train station, in the central district that surrounds Chinggis Khaan Square. Luxury and non-luxury chain hotels, some storied older hotels, and a variety of fairly standard options abound across this central district, close to the main urban attractions. Dotted throughout are a number of guesthouses, providing value for money mid-range and budget options, including some offering shared "gers" (traditional Mongolian sleeping tents).
