Mongolia has one of the lowest population densities in the world, yet it is by no means sparse in any other terms.
While the vast space of Mongolia may attract few visitors, it is a place of beautiful scenery and unusual wildlife. Colossal mountains, lush valleys and the infamous Gobi Desert keep the most adventurous wandering travellers entertained. It is perhaps the lack of infrastructure and services, and the wealth of herdsmen and nomads, that shape the seemingly wild escapades visitors can expect.
A visit to Mongolia may provide intriguing insight into an alternative way of life, yet there remains room for the familiar in the capital Ulaabaater. Half the population remains under the age of eighteen, and there are plenty of chic bars and hang-outs to haunt as a result. Once you're done with comfort though, hop on the nearest jeep with a few hospitable (and somewhat merry) locals and be sure to explore the untamed countryside; just remember to take a tent, and a pair of those famous Mongolian boots (that you just bought at the market) for the ride.
