Overview

Ulaanbaatar is the world’s coldest capital and it’s anything but glamorous. It’s  not like anywhere you’ve ever been to and that’s much of the city’s raw appeal. Get to Terelj national park and stay in a yurt for a night.

Altantuya the Mongol

The Girls

Forget the stereotype, Mongolia is home to some classic beauties. Statuesque and slender with subtle, appealing features; these women are erotic, wonderfully feminine and wear bizarrely sexy couture. They are shy and very sub-servant. Just beware of cock-blocks. Mongolian guys are big, bad and very protective of their women. You want to meet a beautiful, genuine Mongolian girl? I hope you play golf. Good-looking, single girls flock to the Terelj golf course to work as caddies. Imagine a Thai massage parlour, but with dozens of cute girls dying to lug your shit around a golf course for a day. It’s hilarious but a great way to meet a cutie. Traditional culture is strong here so you could have your work cut of for you. There is also plenty of females in the big local Irish bar, the Great Khan.  There’s always a few ‘single’ girls floating round.

Nightlife Recommendations

Due to new laws, nightlife dries up at midnight. Just get out early. That said, The police turn a blind eye and one or two places open till 4pm.

Great Khan
This a huge Irish bar and probably the best spot in the city. It’s always busy and has plenty of cute girls and great food too! The Guinness is surprisingly tasty!

Face Nightclub
It’s in a convenient location and attracts a crowd most nights. Cheap beer and always a few locals knocking about. I got in a fight here for hitting on a local girl.

Legislation: Cannabis is illegal in Mongolia. But it grows naturally almost everywhere in the country so no one really cares. Easy to bribe the cops if youre caught in smoking or possesion its usually max 20.000 tugruks (20$). Anyways cannabis is not very popular in the country so most people doesnt even know what it is.
Law enforcement: Having less than a 5 gramms of hash or cannabis you can stay locked about day or two and will pay fine of 50$ in a local police station. Selling it will make you in trouble of at least year in detention.
Where to buy marijuana: mostly nigth clubs, or ask the hippy looking guys in front area of state department store.

My Ulaanbaatar Experience

I was only here 2 nights and I was here with my parents. I’m not making excuses but having your Mam around kind of puts your game off. The second night I went out on my own to Face club and got in a fight.   But  it wasn’t all bad; my insanely cute golf caddie gave me her number the last day! I wish I had more time here.  I’m sure anyone who had a bit more time here could meet a nice girl. Really, these girls are adorable. Mongolia is a beautiful country.

PS – I actually got my Mongolian flag in Dublin after the trip.

    how bad are those aggressive guys BTW? Do you think it was cold approaching or just being seen with a local woman that got you into trouble? If I go I’ll stay for a while and get a social circle.

    • naughtynomad May 11, 2010 at 9:17 pm #

      It was cold approaching. I think is was just bad luck. I’ve never had trouble like that before. I’ve love to go back and get my Mongol flag.

    hey, how many days you’ve spent in UB? 2? there are better night club clubs than face club i.e. Metropolis, Mass Club, Brilliant etc. and yes, marijuana grows everywhere but not in UB, around Darkhan and Erdenet and the law is very strict, so don’t randomly ask a hippie looking guy in the streets or in night clubs for drugs, it is still considered taboo for the general public. To find good shit in Mongolia you got to have a local friends like myself :D who will find you some decent shit for a reasonable price. A good advice, avoid eye contacts, confrontations in streets with locals especially some bad-ass looking mongols, but if you’ve got the balls you’ll experience mongolian knuckle sandwich firsthand.

    • naughtynomad November 28, 2010 at 1:23 pm #

      Great contribution man, I’ll look you up next time I’m in town :)

  4. Alex April 2, 2011 at 9:04 pm #

    Yes, there are some very lovely ladies in Mongolia. And yes, you have to watch out for the bad boys that want to spoil your fun. But all this can be managed.

  5. Leon January 19, 2012 at 6:45 am #

    Yo Bat..I”m visiting there in Feb for 3 weeks. Can you hook me up with some good mj? Desparetly need them.

  6. Steve April 2, 2012 at 6:30 am #

    Yes, many Mongolian girls are very good looking. They are also very strong and feisty as all hell. Do not be deceived by big doe eyes. These are not soft-hearted women.

    The article says they are “very sub-servant”. I’m not sure what kind of Mongolian girls the writer has been hanging out with. Maybe they were really Korean? Mongol girls are fiery, hot blooded, hot tempered, get angry fast and violently. Do not be surprised if they hit you. Many Mongol people have serious anger problems and this very much includes the women.

    They are a bit like Klingon women, if you ever saw any Trek episodes that feature Klingon ‘mating’ rituals… ie the man and woman basically have a fight and wrestle and growl a lot, maybe scratch and bite each other and then have sex. Thats kind of ‘Mongol girls in a nutshell’ really :P

    Hi,

    I’ve got in UB 10 days ago and I will be here at least for the 3 next months. During these 10 days, I’ve been in Metropolis, Dublin Pub, Grand Kahn Irish Pub, Amsterdam Coffee … but none of these places seemed to me good to interact with local girls. Actually, Metropolis was the only club, but here except of me and a friend of mine whom was with me, all the other people were Mongolian… so i did not felt quite comfortable to approach a girl there… Can anybody recommend some places where we can interact with local girls, without having trouble with local guys … or there are no such places!?!
    Cheers and hope to hearing from you soon.

    This kind of forum help us lot. Because I constantly visit Beijing and that time I read shit like this and it really helps me. That’s why and as a local guy I would like to give you guys some tips. For the drug stuff, it is taboo and try to avoid as much as possible. Recent days authorities took serious actions! Mongolian prison is a living hell. For the local girls, it is a heaven. First of all, they are cheap even free. Cheap means 100K per night, then if you have make good connection with them rest of days will be free. Just saying I will be back, will live here for a while smt like this, or you can find someone who want to learn English or just try white asses. But those kind of girls will not go to places mentioned above. They are in local bars, so you should have local guy. Irish pub, Face, Metropolis etc are full of hookers. Other bars are heaven for guys like you.

  9. Local_bad_ass August 2, 2012 at 10:28 am #

    Also if you looking for even cheaper ass, you should go sauna. There are plenty of saunas here in UB, however customers are local guys and Chinese. Since prostitution is illegal, massage girls playing as a hooker. They are cute, clean and always use condom. But I never see whites and black goes to sauna. Local guys, Chinese and Koreans do. Most of big saunas run by Koreans, in order to go to sauna you need help. When you in sauna you can ask Do you offer “special service”, usually they say no, but in the room you can talk with the girl. Massage and sex will be 30 bucks. Then you can select other girl and pay 30 too. If you have capacity you can f*** 5-6 girls who is in service per night. be careful if massageist are fat and old ladies, they are not! But hot and teenagers they are what you looking for! Good look all.

    Spent a bit of time working in Mongolia, and spent some time in UB dont think i have been to a better country, grant that it is cold but the people are the most friendliest i have ever come across, in the country side they will go out of there way to help and assist you, if you are a dick head you will find bad reception were ever you go, but accept and take the time to learn the correct customs and mongolians are great people. the woman of mongolia are the hottest and sexiest in the world.

  11. Stefano September 9, 2012 at 3:05 pm #

    Hi, and thanks for this forum, I think also that it help a lot.
    I am Italian, I am 39 years old, and it’s my second trip in Mongolia, UB. I have to say first that Mongolia is a beautiful country, nature here is beautiful.
    My first trip was in 2007, It was pretty cool, and very interesting in terms of relations with the Mongolian peoples. I passed a lot of time in The Strings club and also The Irish Pub, and I was never disappointed, never slept alone for almost 2 month. Some time I paid 50000T for all night, and sometime free, always with a beauties from 22 to 28 years old model looking.

    Lets talk about my second trip in UB, I am already here since one month, and I have noticed a lots of change here, first the UB city growing up very quickly, a lots of construction everywhere, but the big change for me is the behavior that the Mongolian boys and girls have with me white foreigner. I explain: everywhere I go now, girls or boys try to avoid me, don’t look in the eyes, don’t even answer to some simple question (Like: what time is it for example).
    This time I feel not comfortable In UB, I have been to Strings a few days ago, still have a lot of people, but if you stay at the bar alone, nobody will look you, I have just seen some prostitutes ,old, fat and very bad looking… In Irish Pub it’s worse, the attitude of the staff is terrible for me, you have to wait long time to get their attention…
    There is still a lots of good looking girls everywhere, but they seems to be very proud this time, independent and a very pretentious.
    Of course there is a lot of solution to get a prostitute not really beautiful but good looking, but it will cost a lot of money around 150000t and more again…
    I would like to say that Mongolia is definitely not a Sex destination, even the girls here are for me the most beautiful girls in Asia, They know it and they are very difficult to approach.
    I have a long experience in Asia, China, Indonesia, Korea, Japan, Thailand, and Mongolia is really different, Asian looking but a kind of European/Russian Thinking.
    The Mongolian man at 90% hate foreigners, and when they get drunk, It’s better to go…
    Hotels here are very expensive, and most of them are not clean and seems 1star hotel.
    Of course, I understand, Mongolia is a big country with a lot of resources, 3 millions Mongolian, and they try to protect their culture.
    I have seen a lot of foreigners here, probably working in mines around UB, and it’s true that they are a bit rude peoples…and they maybe give a bad reputations…I don’t know.
    If someone have a better experience, better place to go out, or maybe a better explanation, I will be very happy to read it.
    Otherwise I work for an investment Bank, and we have good business here.
    Thanks for reading, cheers, Salute.

    To Local_bad_ass, give us address of bars and Massage place, It will help a lot, Thanks…

  13. The Fogster February 7, 2013 at 11:55 am #

    Went to the Face club last saturday night, and enjoyed it a lot. Good ratio of women to men, although they come a bit late in the evening. Guys here are a bit tough, but just don’t do any to silly and they will leave you alone.

    Snogged a couple of real stunners. Ended up taking two back to the hotel, but was too good to be true, and they inevitably asked for cash before they left. Good news was they were only about 100 bucks for the pair. There are some true stunners here, with shapely figures, but you do need a bit of time and effort with them. Enjoy boys!

    While I was studying in Prague at the times of Cold War in 80ies we had a lot of exchange students from Mongolia and Vietnam. They were some were nice ladies. Your report makes me think about a possible pilgrimage to Ulan Bator again :-)

  16. Sergio July 16, 2013 at 3:59 pm #

    Guys, I know it’s a little bit off topic but isn’t the whole point of the naughty lifestyle, to avoid escort/prostitute? I mean what’s really fun is the challenge of seducing the girls, especially in a tough place like Mongolia. I live in Asia and just had dinner with this Mongolian girl. Tall, super pretty and friendly but NOT easy… Strong willed for sure. No give-up though, even if it means few more dates :)

  17. Stefano October 26, 2013 at 7:54 am #

    Guys, forget about Mongolia… Racist people, Many problem, Money gilrs…

    I you want Nice Mongolian girl, go in China they are all Protrude there.

    Nice Nature, but very bad people… 98 % are bull shit…

    Follow my advice, regard.

  18. Mark December 2, 2013 at 8:49 am #

    I agree with Stefano,

    I just spend 15 days in UB for business and it was really hard.. I am from Spain, and i have never see such behavior towards me in another country.
    It seems that the Mongol people are really scared to be eaten by foreigner as they are only 3 milions…

    Such a pity for them, if they do not change in the future, they will never grow up…

    By the way the life is very expensive there, almost more than in Europe and for very cheap quality services.

    Guys, choose another destination for tourism, China will be a better choice…

    Cheers.

    • Rayban54 December 7, 2013 at 11:57 am #

      I spent about 6 months in UB in 1998. I’m sure the restaurant and bar scene has changed, so I have no advice on that score. But I doubt the women have changed much since then. I regret that I haven’t had the chance to go back since. One of these days…I would say your chances of hooking up are close to 100%. There is an amazing array of drop-dead gorgeous gals, ranging from pure amateurs to pros. They all love sex (and can get pretty vocal about it in the heat of passion), and you don’t have to be a polished pickup artist to have fun. Assuming you are not totally tongue-tied in the presence of a female person getting laid is about as easy as you could possibly want. You can meet girls anywhere (I particularly liked the Hash House Harriers – “a drinking club with a running problem” – which had a pretty good mix of locals and expats). You’re not guaranteed to score on your first encounter, but the briefest of courtships – meeting her one night and taking her out to dinner the next time – almost guarantees success. If you just can’t wait a day or two, there used to be hookers (again, semi-pros for the most part) who frequented the bar at the old UB Hotel, right on Sukhbaatar Square), and there may still be. One cold January night as I was walking home from a bar I was accosted by a woman in a little park I was cutting across, who offered me a BJ for 5 dollars, right out there in the open. I gave her $5, but passed on the BJ. No one should have to kneel in the snow in -20 weather and service a foreigner just to feed herself or her kids. Ah, such fond memories. Go and enjoy!

      • David Paye September 30, 2014 at 11:31 pm #

        Unless you look like a troll, you will do no wrong,the first thing you ask her is “Do you speak English ?” if no then move on to the next one as a romance conducted via a phrasebook is too much hard work, the next question “Are you married, do you have a boyfriend?” if no then “Do you want one?” This works for me every time, it is so easy remember that Mongolian men are short on romance, and when it comes to flattery do not use a teaspoon use a shovel! I even last week copped the number of my 27 year old dentist while she was working on my snappers!

  21. Phil06 January 4, 2014 at 1:54 am #

    I just leave Mongolia UB after 3 years of work there. I have to say that it’s true the Mongolian mans are not really open, most of them are really bad ass when they get drink, almost every night…
    To talk about the girls, this country is amazing, the girls are at 80% really beautiful, nice face and body, and it’s true they really like to have sex with foreigners, but in secret…
    They are very hot and get orgasms very quickly… I believe that the reason is that the Mongolian guys do not mach their expectations ( difficult to get hard with 3 gram of vodka in the blood…) But anyway, this situation let for us the doors and their legs really open….:)

    After 3 year , i can say that is not need to see prostitute, or to pay for sex, the tips is to be patient.
    Once your get the mobile number or the Yahoo id of the girl you want to fish, the secret is to be very romantic…Nice words, bla bla, invite her to see the beautiful countryside, buy a small present, etc…
    To my experience in this strategy, I can get a girl in my bed in 3 or 4 days of romantic chat….:) (single or married)
    Once they were in my apartment, I always have some wine, or beer, and candy (they like candy…) and after several fake romantic words, i always got what i wanted.
    8/10 swallow, and like it…

    I miss this Country…

      Any old contacts that I can use.

    • ChingghisKhan July 13, 2014 at 8:15 pm #

      YES, you are very right. Mongolian girls love to f***k foreigners. the “good” girls need some romantic courting for a couple of days and you will get the best sex you ever had, even if you are older. I have lived here for a long time, meanwhile married to a Mongolian girl who brings me girls when I want. HEAVEN!

        As I was notified on the 10th of August I sadly cannot help, but if you return I know of many places where young women can be obtained without heaving out bundles of cash as with the Big Irish.
