Airport to City, Taxi price was USD $ 12. My Hostel arranged for a airport pickup.
Keep – I stayed at Zaya Hostel USD $12 a evening for a private area with shared bath. Breakfast Integrated.
Image to the correct – Classic Mongolian boot, biggest shoe in the planet, in Genghis Khan Theme Park, Chinggis Khan Statue Complicated. In Tsonjin Boldog, about an hours drive from Ulaanbaatar.
Ulaanbaatar is surrounded by hills, the landscape outdoors the city is just wonderful. The City itself is just one more massive city, with rush hour site visitors complications. Most men and women in Ulaanbaatar reside in Apartments.
Currency – For hotels and Tour corporations you can spend in USD or use Visa Mastercard, Even so do retain some Mongolian Tughrik or MNT. For instance I purchased soup in Gorkhi-Terelj National Park and ate in a Yurt, exactly where no 1 spoke English and was glad to have regional currency.
Factors to do in Ulaanbaatar
Now I was there in April, it is cold and not a tourist season. So Gobi desert was out, if you are there in summer time, there are great points to be heard about gobi desert tours.
TIP: If you have time, book your tours when in Mongolia, on-line costs are just also costly.
1) Chinggis Khan Statue Complicated
I took a tour which integrated Chinggis Khan Statue Complicated, Turtle Rock in Gorkhi-Terelj National Park, Ariyabal Meditation Buddhist Temple, Lunch in a Ger or Yurt as it is known as in English, drive about UB. The price was $100 USD.
From UB, its about 45 minutes drive to Chinggis Khan Statue Complicated, its Chinggis and not Genghis as per my Mongolian guide.
There is an entrance charge of 30,000 Mongolian Tughrik or about 22 USD, there is a show of rural Mongolian life, history of the Khan’s and a stairway to the top rated of the horse. Spent an hour there, that is adequate time and was off to see turtle rock.
two) Turtle Rock
About a 15 minute ride from Chinggis Khan Statue Complicated, the ideal of the trip was a lunch in a yurt with Mongolian people. they cooked me fried bread with stuffing, and did not want any income from me, I left a tip.
three) Ariyabal Meditation Buddhist Temple
My Final quit ahead of heading back to UB, from the entrance to the meditation center there is mile and half to two mile hike upto the Buddhist Temple, I was out of breath by the time I reached the top rated. 1 can do cost-free camping and meditation in the summer time there. There is also a bunk hall if you do not want to camp.
There is Tibetan Buddhist Mantra ‘Om Mani Padme Hum’ painted in nearby Hills.
In UB, 1 location every person visits is the Genghis Khan Square
The square is surrounded by hotels, opera, stock exchange, government buildings.
If you want excellent views of the city of Ulaanbaatar, head to Zaisan Memorial Hill
