Ulaanbaatar City Tour
With its booming economy and fascinating melting pot of history and culture, Ulaanbaatar is a thrilling and past-paced city, straddling its tumultuous past and cosmopolitan present. In the hands of a local expert, spend the day uncovering the wonders of this sprawling city, where wide soviet avenues and glittering tower blocks rub shoulders with traditional bazaars and sacred temples.
As part of this private day tour, visit the Gandan Monastery, seat of Mongolian Buddhism and a shining beacon following the religious purges of the 1930s. Over 600 monks now belong to this hallowed place of worship, and you can witness their daily rituals and listen to the chants of the monks as they go about their daily ceremonies. Visit the art and artefacts of ancient Mongolia at the Zanabazar Fine Arts Museum and learn more about Mongolia’s soviet past at the Zaisan memorial, dedicated to Mongolia’s ‘unknown soldiers and heroes’ that have fallen across the centuries. Soak up Mongolian culture, both ancient and modern, at the National Museum and marvel at the statue of one of Mongolia’s greatest revolutionaries at Sükhbaatar Square.
