Spending a few days in Mongolia, but only in the city Ulaanbaatar? While the heart of Mongolia is out on the countryside, there are still plenty of things to do in the capital.
District 3 & 4
A bustling part of the city where you’ll find plenty of shops for clothing, electronics, and other merchandise.
A bit more on the expensive side of things. You’ll find high end fashion designer labels or if you don’t feel like shopping, enjoy the newest blockbusters at the Urgoo cinema inside the mall.
State deparment store
