How to Spend 1 Day in Ulaanbaatar
From monasteries to museums and top attractions, here’s how to make the most of just one day in the capital city of Mongolia.
We will meet at your hotels or accommodations in the morning.
Morning: Museums and Temples
Start by watching monks chant at Gandan Monastery, the city’s main Buddhist center. After that, we will visit the National Museum of Mongolia, home to a fine collection of Mongolian artifacts. Alternatively, visit the Zanabazar Museum of Fine Art or the jin Lama Temple Museum. Wrap up the morning exploring the palaces, temples, and museums at the Bogd Khan Palace Museum, the winter palace of the last king of Mongolia.
Lunchtime: Have lunch in a fine Mongolian restaurant
Afternoon: City Views and Shopping
Visit Zaisan Hill War Memorial and Buddha Park. The huge monument on the top of the hill was created as a memorial to the soldiers who died in World War II. Zaisan Hill overlooks the city and offers the best panoramic view of Ulaanbaatar and its surrounding sacred mountains. Buddha Park features a 23-meter tall statue of Buddha built in 2005. Afterward, head to Sukhbaatar Square, surrounded by important government buildings. It also features a massive, bronze monument of Chinggis (better known as Genghis) Khaan, along with other Mongolian heroes. Next, go shopping at a cashmere factory outlet store, a souvenir shop or anything else you might want to do.
Drive back to your hotel/ accommodations in the evening.
