Ulaanbaatar or short UB has several spellings. I arrived and left UB by train. Some of my sightseeing like visiting the viewpoint was made with a guide and other by myself or with fellow VTer veggieguru like visiting Gandan monastery.

I think that visiting UB is a must but UB isn't Mongolia. It's a good base to return to for your onward travel and shopping.

    Interesting page. I think UB got big influences from both sides - China and Russia ;) I hope to cross border Europe - Asia in May ;) Do you know where? :)

    Again I had to look on the map to see where this place is. Great that you arrived and left by train! Those 14th century holy writings must look really holy since they were written with gold ink on black paper!

    UB must be interesting place to visit. I have been thinking of visiting it for a long time. But I have not yet made it. Hopefully soon.
