Anchorage, Alaska, USA

Not my favorite city in the world and nearly every Mongolian would tell you he or she would rather be in the countryside, nevertheless, you will most likely land in Ulaanbaatar at least once during your trip to Mongolia. And I don't think you'd want to miss it because there are some good museums and monasteries here and cultural events. as well Also the best hotels are in UB.

The capital city of Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar is where the adventure starts. It's a pleasant enough city to hang around for a few days, with all the great Korean (yes, that's right!) restaurants.

Very interesting city with mixture of Mongolian and Russian architecture. The back drop of mountains makes it ver picturesque.

A growing melting pot of cultures in a small city, ulaanbaatar is unassumingly metropolitan. There are international restaurants and huge shopping complexes. However, Ulaanbaatar is really always only a stopover for travelers to Mongolia as the main draw is the countryside. This makes for a good stopover to rejuvenate and refresh after weeks in the wild.

Changes are coming and for the positive in the vibrate Mongolian capital city, Ulaanbaatar. Many residential and commercial development projects are popping up in the city. I would consider this city modern. If free wi-fi is available in most restaurants and pubs, it is modern on my book. I sense much more positive changes in this rapidly growing capital city.

The only large city in Mongolia. This fast growing city is rapidly developing but is still in a different world to most cities. The start place for most travellers heading out into the vastness of Mongolia to explore the wilderness

One of the fastest growing economies in the world. A mix of old and new. Fascinating place to visit.

UB is pretty ugly and very polluted. I didn't particularly enjoy my time there, sad to say. I'd say get out into the countryside when you can.

I love Mongolia but UB has to be the ugliest capital I have seen. As part of their unfortunate legacy, the Soviets left the city with their uninspired architecture. The city is a convenient place for exploring the wonders of the rest of the country, flying to distant areas, returning to UB and then flying out to explore other areas.
