Hospitable Ulaanbaatar

Ulaanbaatar is the city of nomads where a culture of hospitality has in-grained itself over centuries. Ulaanbaatar’s days as a remote North Asian outpost are long behind it, and its portfolio of high-end hotels has grown dramatically in recent years. Today visitors to the city are spoiled for choice, with a wide range of luxury business and leisure facilities available, offering world-class dining, recreation, and service with a smile. Most visitors will first encounter the beating heart of this tradition in Great Chinggis Khaan Square. Said to be where all roads in the capital meet, it is the perfect place to relax and plan your journey. The square is surrounded by comfortable and welcoming settings, from cafés and galleries to restaurants and museums. From there the intrepid traveller might visit the Bogd Khaan Palace, the only remaining residence of the last Mongolian emperor, or the early 19th century Gandan Monastery, one of the few Buddhist structures to escape destruction during the political upheaval of the 1930’s. Ulaanbaatar also has several museums catering to a variety of interests, such as the Mongolian Dinosaur Museum, the National Museum, the Zanabazar Museum of Fine Arts and the Choijin Lama Temple Museum. Located on the banks of the Tuul River, present-day Ulaanbaatar is the best gateway to all other destinations in the North East and Central Asian region.
