20 Years of Wendy Wu Tours

As Mongolia’s sprawling capital city, Ulaanbaatar is the gateway to the country’s great outdoors. The city has gone into overdrive as the money floods in, leading to a quirky architectural mix of glass skyscrapers, Soviet-style Socialist blocks, ger tents and traditional Buddhist monasteries. Chaotic and increasingly cosmopolitan, here you’ll find all the trappings of modern life, but it can still be easily escaped – enjoy the wide-open space of Chinggis Khan Square at the city’s heart, and find some tranquillity at Ganden Khiid, one of Mongolia’s most important Buddhist monasteries.
