    Mongolian goods

    What to buy: 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.

    This is a HUGE and very modern Department Store-cum-Supermarket.

    Considering the fact that you are in Mongolia, a very REMOTE country, this place is actually quite well-stocked.

    Everything, if you are not too demanding, seems to be available in the ground-floor supermarket floor and upper-floor department stores. Good to stock up on groceries to cook at your guesthouse.

    The State Department Store: Souvenirs in Mongolia

    by D_Shannon Updated Oct 19, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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 Juulchin Camp airport actually had some really nice postcards and masks. Or, of course, you can be a real tourist like us and manage to shop right in the middle of the Gobi!

    What to buy: Traditional jacket.
    Sheep ankle bones (for fortune telling - make sure you get an English instruction kit!)
    Wooden masks.
    Vodka! Comes in a fantastic leather pouch.

    Souvenirs from the train

    In the restaurant wagon, they have a little shop where they sell typical products. We bought some cachemire gloves and a camel wool pullover.
    Besides, in every station where the train stops you can see an intense trading through the windows, mainly between chinese people of the train and locals…
