  • Anything and everything

    Naran Tuul Market, east of the city centre, is also known as the Black Market (Khar Zakh), but it's not the sort of place where you go to change money illegally and smuggle goods - though this certainly happens. The market is huge, one of the biggest in Asia and in summer up to 60,000 people a day squeeze inside. An undercover area has a decent...

    Known as ikh delguur or 'big shop', the State Department Store is virtually a tourist attraction in itself, with the best products from around the city squeezed into one building. The 1st floor has a good supermarket at the back and the rest of the floor is taken up by perfume counters. The 2nd floor has outlets for clothing, cashmere and leather...

  • Felt slippers

    This is a comprehensive souvenir shop inside the main temple complex, just walk to your left upon entering the main gate. I found that you can get many of the same things in UB cheaper. But why not look for the special touch, and never mind place of origin. For my home I bought thick, warm winter slippers made from wool felt and hide...

  • A nice fur, no biodiversity catastrophe

    The Black Market is not a "black market" but the main outdoors market in UB. In one area there will be indivduals trying to sell hides of various critters, some legal, some not according to CITES. The marmot skins are very fine and soft and warm, so go for those; millions are killed each year in what still is considered sustainable harvesting -...

There are some food stalls outside the covered area....

  • One-stop shop for gifts

    I'm not sure what's the name of it in English, but in Mongolian it is something like this. It is located near the main train station (10m east from it on the same side of the street) - a grey two-story building. A good one-stop shop for all your gifts - cashmere, carpets, leather goods and sheepskin. On the second floor at the very end there is a...

  • Mongolian goods

    Dels, the Mongolian herdsman/woman clothing, can be bought fairly inexpensively. Actually you can buy the fabric, and have it made for you fairly quickly. A snuff bottle is another popular item, they range from very cheap 5 dollar bottles to 100 dollars or more.

Good to stock up on groceries to cook...

    The State Dept Store in UB has a great selection of souvenirs, including some wonderful Mongolian jackets, but the prices are a bit high. Save it for last, and instead do all the shopping you can at smaller, cheaper outlets. There's a good one around the corner from that Bayansomethingorother hotel near the square, and the small shop in the...
