  • I think it is well not to be heard from Mongolia Museum, Memorial Hall next. Buddhist art, as well as help people who live in the form of a camel and tradition can be brought to their colorful clothes, etc., meticulously drawn. But it's not in the nature of their culture can be seen facing the opportunities.

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).
