I am new to Lonely Planet, and was referred by a close friend of mine that has used Lonely Planet to secure a job overseas teaching English in various different countries. I am moving to Mongolia sometime early next year, and before I begin moving, I was hoping to secure some kind of job while out there. Preferably teaching English as English is my first language, Korean being second. I have taught ESL to many South Korean immigrant here in the United States and help them with…
I am going to Mongolia late October staying 2 days in the region of the Great White Lake.
I am a bit worried with the cold so I am not willing to stay at a ger camp in this region. Cold nights ...
I am in doubt about staying at Tunga's Guesthouse in Tariat or in Maikhan Tolgoi tourist ger camp (if it is open).
Everyone knows something about? Another idea?
I just spent a few hours searching for info on how to get from UB to Terelj park via a bus. There were quite a bit discrepancies between the different sites.
If any of you were there recently, please share some basic information -
1) Is the bus stop in front of the Narantuul Hotel on Peace Av.?
2) When does the bus leave UB? I saw 12:00, 16:00 (or sometimes both)
Thank you for your help,
Hello, We are in Russian Altai and just heard rumors that Mongolia started very recently to introduce a "re-export-guarantee-system" for vehicles older than 10 years in asking for a depot of at least USD 4'500 + 15% of the present value of the car. It's said to avoid travelers "hanging around" and "dumping" their old cars.
Does anybody know about this new rule, or even made an experience? Thanks: Emil
I'm a photographer looking to go out West Mongolia by Monday(ish) Sept 19th... would love some time also in Central Mongolia instead of skipping right through, as well interested in trekking out West etc before the Eagle Festival. After the Eagle Fest I would skip back into NW China Urumqi via Bulgan Boarder. I guess its a shot in the dark because if I did find outhers willing to do this would still need to get a personal driver and vehicle back to UB.
I have a great offer for a trip out…
Hello all - I was planing on taking a winter trip in January 2017 on a trans-mongolia train departing from Moscow and ending the trip at Ulan Bator. I am a solo women traveler and I am more interested in taking this trip in winter and winter landscapes are always more appealing to me than its summer counterparts. Do you have any experience in this journey especially in winter and do you think there are any safety issues that I should be concerned about. I am an experienced solo traveler who has…
I would like to buy a vehicle in Mongolia.
Is it possible to buy something legally? Will I need a Mongolian license, or is an international drivers license sufficient? Will it need to be insured in Mongolia?
Thank you in advance
I today booked a flight to UB, Mongolia for 14th October. However I am quite confused about getting the visa necessary for 2 week tourist entry and exit.
I am an Irish citizen living in Myanmar and will not be able to leave Myanamar before this travel date (except a short stay in Vietnam before this).
Does anyone know how I can obtain the visa? DHL passport and docs to a nearby embassy or consulate? Does anyone know how long this will take?
Thanks a lot!
