Impressions of Ulan Bator
Submitted by Amber on 2007-03-02 03:28:03 (via www.worldtravelstories.com)
A very neat and concise overview of Ulan Bator, its culture and present conditions. When you think what a great people it was centuries ago, conquering land and subjugating nations. But now things changed and life is not the same for Mongolians.

I made the impression that Ulan Bator lives about some other general rules, or has forgotten to develop since some decades ago:), but I feel like I would like to visit it. It is like moving for some days back in time in a kind of surreal place. I am just wandering if Mongolia was ever a sovietic country?

A very nice take on UB... the main gripe is the city is actually spelled Ulaanbataar!

so Ulaanbaatar is capital of Mongolia. For us this city is more than developed other cities. You can find out there, some where it's looks like (for you) countryside, so many people and you can see nature, one city who is now developing and try to be big city.

All you have written is true. But time has changed and mongolia is developing gradually. The places and buildings of the photos that you atached here are changed completely, unfinshed buildings all finished today. Even we don't have much building sites left. everywhere you can see modern buildings constructions, including Shangrila hotel, Hilton hotel. World class brands all here in mongolia they are all doing good.

Hello

Of course you are right. Places do change very quickly, and each time I revisit a place after sometime, I am surprised. No doubt this is also true for Mongolia. That is also the interesting part about travel stories : they are not only a description of places visited, they also give an idea about how things are at a particular time, and in such allow the reader to compare situations. They tell something about history. Thanks for your interest in my story, I really appreciate the feedback. Filip
