Ulaanbaatar is the capital and the largest city in Mongolia.
It is disproportionately larger than all other cities in the country: with a population of 1.34 million as of January 2016, approximately 44% of the country lives here. It is located just east of the center of the country in the forest-steppe region close to the birthplace of Genghis Khan.
After stagnating in the 1990s, the economic situation in Ulaanbaatar has improved — nowadays the city center is clean and developed, with modern skyscrapers, hotels, and malls showcasing local and international brands.
The city is known for its impressive museums, old monasteries, high quality restaurants, cinemas, theatres, and proximity to scenic natural spots.

Waste of money
This is a complete waste of money. You can easily get the same information from Travelocity or any website if you type in “Ulan Bataar.” There is no practical info and I learned nothing about the city beyond what I already knew. If I could return it, I would.
