Ulaanbaatar is a city with a long name and a lot to offer. Perched in a river valley, it’s surrounded by a lush and exquisite landscape. Its pride and joy is the Bogd Khan Uul National Park, which is most often a tourist’s first stop. Nature’s wonders abound here and are visible in the form of fascinating hot springs and beautiful rock formations.

Ulaanbaatar is a destination of stark contrasts. On one hand, you can experience a traditional lifestyle that’s indigenous to Mongolia and, on the other hand, just a short distance away, the city center’s towering buildings reveal how modernity has encroached into this historic town. However, evidence of its rich past is still seen in the Soviet-era buildings and historic statues that pepper the city center. Come and spend time in Ulaanbaatar by staying in one of the Airbnb vacation rentals on our list below. Scroll down to learn more.

The apartment features a modern design with large windows that not only give off a relaxing vibe but offer a beautiful view of the cityscape as well. Amenities like cable HDTV with Netflix, Wi-Fi, heating and cooling, and a modern kitchen provides comfort and convenience. It’s also big enough to comfortably sleep up to four people.
