"PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION &TRAIN" Mongolia Transportation Tip by grazy56

Mongolia Transportation: 81 reviews and 121 photos

BY LAND: Traveling in Mongolia is not always easy as depend also how you will discover this country and how many days you have vacation. Traveling by jeep can be sometimes tiring because of bad climate or bad roads, so better to not want to make many KM! prefer do less Km but take time to enjoy countryside and its nomadic life. Agencies and especially independent drivers really often don’t have a shop downtown so it could be difficult when on UB to choose the best one for you.

1. BY LAND: public transportation isn't reliable: delayed, canceled… Roads are running tracks in very bad condition. Vehicles can be rented from private owners for about 50 cents $/km in town. BUT WRITE ALL DESTINATIONS WITH CYRILLIC LETTERS as nobody will understand you (ask at your hotel), also good for all the taxi running in U.B. For longer stay the price will depend of what kind of deal you can make, the number of persons, the price of gasoline. Often you will find different prices: one for local people, one for Russian (a little more expensive) and one for others (more expensive).
