We've been back from our trip in the wilderness 10 days and finally won our death match with the Chinese Embassy in Mongolia. Took several visits and many emails to hostels in Beijing to get something that looked like an Invitation to the country (actually turned-out to be only a confirmation of our visit to Beijing) - no-one wants to give an …
Obviously I jumped at the chance to spend six months working in Mongolia. That kind of opportunity just doesn't come round every day.
I'll be honest: I knew next to nothing about the country, other than its rough location. North-east Asia isn't even a place I had ever been particularly drawn to.
With less than two weeks between …
... of the market, which was mostly electrical goods and bits of solar panel! We moved onto the clothes section and Ben and I both bought some gloves. The woman didn't seem all that keen to haggle, but we got her down to 8,000 tugriks from her original 10,000. On the way out, we saw a man selling just sheep heads out the back of his car and what looked like a distinctly human poo next to a fence. We raced for the bus and headed back into UB. A drunk man on the ...

she very kindly gave us a key to the front door and some very nice
bedding. However, problem three arouse; electricity was not working!

Not my bag, I'll be honest - I played safe with mutton noodles, but the great thing about travelling in a group is you will always have one or two who will push the boat out, just for the photo opportunity.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Blue Sky Tower Ulan Bator
The hotel is clearly very new, and already a pretty iconic building in UB. It's well presented and I wouldn't be at all suprised if Hilton take it over in the next 5-10 years. The advertised swimming pool is not yet open, but there is a small gym and a nice lounge bar at the top with great views over the city (the bar is frequented by old western men and young mongolian girls if you know what I mean - pretty interesting to watch). The staff are nice but sometimes there is a bit of a language miscommunication - this will certainly improve with time. Not a bad place to stay at all.
