The capital and largest city in the country, Ulaanbaatar stands as Mongolia's transport, cultural, and commercial hub. With important historical and religious sites sitting alongside towering modern malls and stylish restaurants, Ulaanbaatar combines the old and the new, the spiritual and the commercial, the hedonistic and the traditional across its vast area. A venture out to discover the capital's nightlife shows this with particular clarity, with traditional theater performances and Western club nights providing real variety for visitors and residents alike. Visits to Buddhist monasteries and temples represent some of the main things to do in Ulaanbaatar, while the city, country, and region's history can be discovered at a number of national museums. Plan your visit to Ulaanbaatar and other destinations in Mongolia using our Mongolia online visit planner.
