BEWARE OF PICK-POCKETS AND THIEVES
Watch your belongings like a hawk. My friend had her bag stolen the minute we stepped out of the train-station.
At the Black Market, the pick-pockets, known as ALI-BABAS, are everywhere. They usually carry a sweater or jacket awkwardly across their shoulders to hide the stolen goods. The Black Market is crowded and there tend to be people pushing. The Ali-Babas know about your money-belts and will poke your backs to test for them.
Another friend had some pencils in his pocket and even those were pick-pocketed away.
During the Naadam Festival, the pick-pockets took advantage of the distracted crowds and made many attempts, especially on tourists. Yet another friend had the pockets of his pants (two of them, one on either side!) slashed and his money fell out. Just be careful!
Beware the thieves!
I was never robbed, but everywhere I was advised to take care of my possessions. It seems that there are many pickpockets in the buses.

The sun set in at 22:00pm in summer, then the sky turns dark suddenly, if you are alone, avoid walking at the dark lane..
