I traveled to Mongolia a year ago and still keep in touch with my local guide. Ulaanbaatr is actually a modern city, yet many outsiders view it as archaic. One standout is the giant Genghis Khan Equestrian Statue. It’s about a half hour from town and offers great views from the top. Love the area? You can have yourself bronzed as a warrior and placed at the base of the statue.
