Shopping in Mongolia
Mongolia is known for its traditional handicrafts, especially those made by the nomadic herders. Some of the popular items that you can purchase include cashmere products, felt slippers, traditional clothing, and jewelry made from silver, turquoise, and other precious stones.
The best places to go shopping in Mongolia are the local markets, such as the Narantuul Market (also known as the "Black Market") in Ulaanbaatar. This market offers a wide range of souvenirs, clothing, and handicrafts at affordable prices, but be prepared to haggle.
You can also find specialty shops in Ulaanbaatar that sell authentic Mongolian goods, such as the State Department Store, Nomin Department Store, and the Gobi Cashmere Factory Store. In addition, many hotels and tourist attractions also have gift shops that sell Mongolian souvenirs and handicrafts.
