Ulaanbaatar is an enormous bustling city with and eclectic mix of commerce, traffic, nightlife, and bohemian culture. The contrasts within the city are immense and sights of Armani-suited businessmen and mohawked punks occur at every corner intertwined with nomads straight from the steppes.

The winters here are harsh and long, but when the spring arrives, the city bursts into life. This chaotic capital is a fascinating part of any Mongolian adventure and taking time to admire traditional theatre, sample international cuisine and party till three in the morning can all be enjoyed. This ever-changing city may be the biggest surprise of your Mongolian adventure.
