Mongolia

I'm considering taking an extended trip to Ulaanbaator in the winter. Has anyone here been to Mongolia? What are the people like? Do they constantly try to squeeze money out of you? Are they hostile to foreigners? What do the bathrooms in apartments and restaurants look like? Do any posters here have experience with the women, paid or free? Do they have fully equipped and inexpensive gyms? What is the flight there like? Is there a lot of turbulence?

Also, if any of you have been to Mongolia and have any stories you feel like telling, please share them. Let this be a general Mongolia thread.

      If you've never been to Mongolia, why did you respond to this thread? And if you haven't spent any significant amount of time traveling, why are you on this board?

        you don't have to go there to know that the appeal of Mongolia are the steppes, the deserts, hiking and the mountains, not gyms whores or the capital city

        everyone knows that, except for brainlets like you

    Something like this has been on my mind too. I feel like I need to break free of my current world and go somewhere completely different for a while. Apparently the issue is you can't get into Russia or China so that has hurt Mongolian tourism

      How did that hurt Mongolian tourism?

      I've been a frequent traveler for many years now, but I can't handle tropical weather. If you're looking for a first place to visit, I recommend South Korea or Japan. Get an apartment in Seoul or in Japan outside of Tokyo and spend a few months just walking around and enjoying yourself.

      If you think over it for yourself, you might be able to figure out why I'm interested in these things. The only hint I'll give you is that if I go I will be there for at least three months.

        Because generally people would either travel Russia to Mongolia or Mongolia to China. Both are closed.

    UB is one of the coldest cities on Earth in the winter; you might reconsider your timeline if you don’t like frostbite.
    >Has anyone here been to Mongolia?What are the people like?
    They vary. Many are shy and self-effacing, but there’s also a lot of pride, and local tough guys may be hostile to extremely hostile if they have been drinking and you are trying to pick up local women or might be mistaken for trying to pick up local women. It’s one of not many countries where I have known people to accidentally wind up in serious danger of getting seriously fucked up by locals.

    >Do they constantly try to squeeze money out of you? Are they hostile to foreigners?
    No to the first, and not usually to the second, but see above.
    >What do the bathrooms in apartments and restaurants look like?
    Don’t know about apartments but restaurants may have flush squatters, like in other Asian countries.
    >Do any posters here have experience with the women, paid or free?
    I certainly don’t, but I never tried. My friend who visited with his Chinese-American girlfriend nearly got the shit kicked out of him in a nightclub because they thought she was a local. Pretty sure others here have hooked up with locals, though. A lot of the hookers are apparently from backwater China, but I never met any personally.

      I'd like to experience that. I've experienced and actually enjoyed East Coast snowstorms and snowy Seoul winters. How bad is it, really?
      >and local tough guys may be hostile to extremely hostile if they have been drinking and you are trying to pick up local women or might be mistaken for trying to pick up local women
      I don't try to pick up women on the street or in clubs. How about escorts?
      >Don’t know about apartments but restaurants may have flush squatters, like in other Asian countries.
      Do they have bidets? How about toilet paper? How clean are the bathrooms? If you've been to Thailand or a similar shithole, how do they compare?
      >My friend who visited with his Chinese-American girlfriend nearly got the shit kicked out of him in a nightclub because they thought she was a local.

      That's not good. Would they attack even if it were a "long-term relationship" and not just an attempt to have sex?

      Just steer clear of the girls or you'll get your face kicked in by angry Mongol men.

      Does this apply to more normal means of socializing, like joining a club and getting to know a girl that way? Or is it more about attempts to pick up random girls for sex on the street?

        Also, what about pests, insects, parasites, and food poisoning? Can I eat what locals offer without worrying about developing stomach problems?

        Much, much, much colder than either of the above. Average highs in January are in the single digits (F), average lows are double digits below zero (in either C or F).
        >bidets/toilet paper
        I never saw a bidet. Toilet paper is generally BYO.

        >women etc
        I have only visited Mongolia as a married man and have never attempted to find an escort or a girlfriend. But I have seen drunk locals get violent. No idea how universal it is but it is definitely something that happens.

          When I was last in Seoul, it sometimes hit -10C, and a few times dropped as low as -20C. I was just fine.
          But what about the wind? I've heard that it's the wind that makes the winters really terrible.
          >I never saw a bidet. Toilet paper is generally BYO.
          Inconvenient...

          This only makes me respect them more. I want to see this proud people for myself.

            -10C and - 40C are very different worlds.

            That's also not factoring in that Seoul is in a first world, tightly packed country where you can easily walk in anywhere to warm up. Mongolia is still very much third world.

                Large numbers of people go through it year round and survive. So, what's the big deal?

                There are more than a few rentals available at low prices. Just look them up.

                The fact that you seem to have no idea, nor do you seem capable of doing your own research. -40° will result in frostbite in short order, and kill you if you're stupid about it.

                t. camped in -40°

    There is no tourist infrastructure in Mongolia once you leave UB. You can't just hop on a bus to another place and stay at a hotel/hostel there. You need a local guide and driver. Fortunately those are not too difficult to come by, you can easily find them in UB.

      Yeah, I've heard its ok in the summer, awful in the winter. Air pollution is really bad (everything is coal or wood heated), its freezing, there's no cleared sidewalks and a lot of buildings aren't heated well.
