The train from Beijing to Ulaanbaatar

by happyhourkid

Hey all,

I'm booked on this train in October. I believe I'm riding on the Mongolian Train (I guess there's also a Chinese train and a Russian train). Has anyone else ridden on this train? If so I have 2 questions and some sub-questions:

1. Does this train make any stops along the way besides the change of gauge stop in Erenhot? If so, which other towns does it stop in? Is it possible to exit the train when it makes these stops (even just to walk along the platform)?

2. Does anyone have any recommendations to make the 30+ hour ride more fun, comfortable, etc? Everytime I read a forum it only says to bring instant noodles and playing cards. I need a wider spectrum that that!

Thanks everyone,

Chris

a) Yes, the train does stop at many stations and you can take a stroll. Most important station (for you) is Datong. In the fact, it's so important, you may (and better!) to decide to leave the train and spend few days there. You can continue with the same ticket, just buy new reservation at the international counter in Datong - CITS should help you.

b) i's actually Erlian where the change of the gauge happens. It's not pronounced Erenhot.

c) We made some pictures, ate in dining car, etc. - all the way from Moscow and we did it 6 times. There are many people on the train, it is not boring.

d) Unless you know the day precisely, you never know, what (Chinese or Mongolian) train you are riding. There could be even a Russian car on the Chinese train going to "Hohhot" (Ho-he-hao-te). Too bad, the agencies are not always familiar with the tickets... On the 2nd class there is little if any difference between Chinese, Mongolian or Russian cars: all are made in Germany.

Thanks for the tip about Datong.

What I'm actually wondering is if on the train from Beijing to Ulaanbaatar where the train stops. Most specifically, does it make an actual stop in Zamyn-Uud and Choir, Mongolia, even for just a few moments.

And by the way, Erenhot apparently is the Mongolian pronunciation (the city is in Inner Mongolia, after all), and Erlian is the Chinese pronunciation, so we are both correct. : )

Travel Tips for Ulaanbaatar

Naadam Festival

by victorwkf

The famous Naadam Festival of Mongolia is held throughout the country, and the main festival is held in Ulaanbaatar's stadium. The festival is Mongolia's carnival, national day, sporting day all rolled into one, and not to be missed. In fact, you need to get your tickets and accomodation early to avoid disappointment, and prices will go up.

Naadam Festival - TV

by Willettsworld

Naadam is a very popular event throughout the whole of Mongolia and so is watched by the entire nation on TV. In fact when I was there, virtually every Mongolian TV station was broadcasting either live or recorded feeds from the festival. One TV channel had their truck parked up by the gate that I used to enter into the stadium.

Dabai Restaurant Pub

by yumyum

I visited this restaurant with VTer veggieguru who was vegetarian. She found herself a yummy spaghetti with veggies. What I ate I don't really remember but the first dish I wanted was not available.

The restaurant is not very big and in the front section there is a bar, which gives it a bit of a pub feeling.

Nice atmosphere and very good food

by Willettsworld about Pizza Broadway

I came here twice as I found it to be very good. They actually have two places within a few minutes of each other. The first is on Peace Ave opposite the Russian Embassy while the second is on the road running up the side of the State Department Store known as West Selbe Street. The food is really good. They do grilled meats as well as other dishes but they obviously do pizzas.

Sukhbataar Square

by victorwkf

The Sukhbataar Square is named after the revolution hero of Mongolia and is one of the most famous landmark in Ulaanbaatar. There is a statue of Sukhbaatar here, and surrounding buildings include the Parliament building and the National Opera. A lot of locals like to hang out at the square during the evenings and weekends.
