Where to stay in Mongolia
Hotels in Mongolia are mostly found in Ulaanbaatar, where visitors can choose anything from family-run hotels to international chains. Outside the capital, hotels are basic and few in number.
Camping in Mongolia is one of the best ways to experience the country and there are numerous tourist ger camps spread throughout the countryside. In some cases, there are also restaurants, bars, toilets and showers nearby. Ger camps are usually open from May to October. Tourists with their own tents have the opportunity to camp almost anywhere they want in Mongolia, although there are restrictions in protected areas.
There are several backpacker hostels and guest houses in Ulaanbaatar. Most offer additional services such as guided trips to the countryside and visa assistance.
