Craft and shopping in Mongolia

Traditional objects and clothes

You will find lots of craft made of felt: small yurts, slippers ... which make nice small presents for your family and friends.

Objects used by the nomads during their everyday life are also very nice: wooden spoons, traditional saddles ...

Colored nomadic clothes, incredible hats (very important in the traditional clothing) are also easy to find.

 

Cashmere

Mongolia is the first cashmere producer in the world.

You will find very good quality cashmere products at the State Department Store, with a large choice.

 

Traditional religious objects

You will also find Buddhist statues and traditional religious objects.

Be careful with antiques, as their export is forbidden, and you could have them seized at the airport on the way back, even for small objects, or fake antiquities bought in the department store of Oulan Bator.

 

The State Department Store, situated on Peace avenue in Ulaanbaatar, gathers about all that you can hope to find.

On the last floor, you will find the largest choice of souvenirs.

 

Beware of pickpockets everywhere in the city center.

IMPORTANT - Flights in Mongolia


Be aware that very few airlines go to Mongolia, flights are therefore quickly fully booked, especially between June and September. Book at least 6 months in advance to have the best air fares.
If your luggage has been delayed, the airlines do NOT deliver it in Mongolia, they keep it available in Ulan Bator. If your tour has already started, and you are already in the Orkhon Valley for example, it can be very expensive to deliver it.
We can do it for you at extra cost:
- 50 € for a delivery inside Ulan Bator
- 100 € for a delivery in Hustai
- 200 € for a delivery in Khogno Khan
- 300 € for a delivery in Karakorum, the Orkhon Valley or Arkhangai
- 400 € for a delivery at Lake Khövsgöl or in the Gobi Desert
This cost includes the driver & the vehicle for 1 or 2 days depending on the distance + fuel for the vehicule for the round trip + meals and accommodation for the driver if the roundtrip is more than 1 day.
If your flight is late, the same rates apply if you need a private transfer.
