    Huge square in the middle of Ulaanbaatar, surrounded by modern buildings and a museum, used for festivals. Was previously called Sukhbaatar Square after Damdin Sukhbaatar, a Mongolian revolutionary hero but renamed Chinggis Square in 2013. There's a large colonnade monument dedicated to Genghis Khan, as well as to Ögedei Khan and Kublai Khan, dominating the square's north face. I arrived during Mongolian New Year so everywhere was closed sadly.

    It is a monument at the top of the hill so don't get yourself too worked up with expectations. The Soviet style mural is good and the view across UB is very good. A tip: You can avoid most of the steps up to it by entering the nearby shopping centre and taking a lift to the top which has a walk-way across to it.

    The station isn't handy for the city centre, but being a spread out city, most areas will require a walk or a taxi. The inside of the station was organised chaos and very busy, but it was a fascinating example of life here.

    Easy place for a good photo op. In January they also have a number of ice sculptures. Recommend a walk around.

    Big statue of Marco Polo on one of the main avenues. Interesting to see the connection between Mongolia and him. Worth taking a quick picture

    While traveling from the Chinggis Khan Airport to downtown Ulaanbaatar, we came across this park covered in snow with a Camel Caravan. The statues are larger than live and consist of a camel herder on horseback, a large dog and several camels in a convoy. My driver informed me that this complex was designed to honor and show the old Silk Road which ran through the area hundreds of years ago. Unfortunately the intersection in extremely congested with traffic and stopping to take pictures is not recommended due to safety concerns.

    The site itself is small though it is no doubt very important as it was quite busy on the Sunday that we went. Though people came and went going inside felt as if I had walked into somebody's house by mistake and they weren't happy about it.

    If you go take a guide who might be more welcome than you on your own. Even with a guide this is no more than a 10 minute stop I would suggest.
