Those of you who know where Ulaanbaatar is, raise your hands and congratulations on being a world-aware citizen. For those who don’t know, Ulaanbaatar is in Mongolia. When the name Mongolia comes up, what do you think Mongolia might be like? If you picture yaks and onagers, you’re partially right. Do you envision yurt, or ger, portable, circular dwellings where the Mongolians live? Do you think of rosy-cheeked children in the out of doors and a civilization that has not stepped into the 21st century? Well, some of the hints listed above are still relevant and correct, but, when you watch the video below, be prepared to step into their 21st century. Hint: watch of the reference to Nirvana.
Ulaanbaatar (and specifically the city of Zaisan) is home to a significant portion of Mongolia’s population. As of 2021, it had an estimated population of around 1.5 million people. The city has modern infrastructure with well-developed road networks, public transportation systems, and utilities. The city continues to invest in improving its infrastructure to accommodate its growing population and economic activities. In other words, definitely a place to visit. As a citizen of the world, you’ll fit right in. Book your tickets here.
