Ulaanbaatar Travel Guide: 325 reviews and 984 photos

Ulaanbaatar (which means "Red Hero") is the capital of Mongolia. It is a simple and no-frills type of city with some tourist attractions.

Ulaanbaatar is surrounded by mountains which protect it from the harsh surrounding elements. The Tuul River flows through the city and you can see people swimming in it during the hot summer.

Let me share with you some of my experiences in Ulaanbaatar which you might find useful, and perhaps give your comments and ratings. Thanks.
