"Books, Travel Guides & Movies" Mongolia Favorite Tip by andronikkie

Mongolia General: 90 reviews and 116 photos


Favorite thing: - A very nice movie that shows a lot about nomad life in the Gobi is a German - Mongolian production: "The Story of the Weeping Camel".
- A very good book about modern Mongolia in general, some history, an introduction to local customs and also a travelogue is "In Search of Genghis Khan" by Tim Severin.
- The travel guides that I used were Lonely Planet Mongolia and Bradt Mongolia. Between them they cover almost everything. The Lonely Planet is as always very good with practical things like eating, sightseing etc. The Bradt is better to give you an in depth background, a better understanding and grasping of the culture and the general situation that you will face once there.
