Editorial Reviews

Review

'An impressive guidebook - clear, comprehensive and very readable.' John Durham, Former British Ambassador to Mongolia 'A great read for arm-chair enthusiasts, packed with facts and advice from the author.' Traveller

From the Back Cover

Mongolia is one of the few countries left that can be explored with a true spirit of adventure. Open to the Western world only since 1990, this "Land of Blue Sky" offers excellent horse or camel riding, thrilling festivals such as the renowned Naadam, and a heritage steeped in rich culture and tradition.
This comprehensive guide includes detailed history and natural-history sections, and full coverage of the thriving capital, Ulaanbaatar. And, for those keen to sample the unique pleasures of staying with nomads, it explains how and where to experience the traditional lifestyle of a Mongolian ger.
Inside you will find information on: customs, ceremonies and festivals; special-interest holidays, including riding, hiking, biking and bird watching; in-depth information on national parks, wildlife, conservation and flora; language, pronunciation and useful phrases; Trans-Mongolian/Trans-Siberian railway; 37 clear, detailed maps.

Format: Paperback
If you want to get real background about Mongolia, it's history and it's people-- than this is the book for you. No mere travel guide--this book gives indepth perspective about the country dealing with things everywhere from the street children to environmental issues. You'll probably need to buy another guide to get more information about where to go and what to do--but this book will really give you a 101 course about the country that no other travel guide will give you

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I decided on buying this book over the standard travel books, like the Lonely Planet series, I was looking for something different and perhaps more personal it its descriptions. This book is certainly informative and includes personal descriptions (often at the sacrifice of more usable information), but it really didn't do a good job of representing what I saw in Mongolia. The price estimates were extremely over-inflated (a welcome surprise), and the maps didn't help at all. I suspect this book is meant for a different type of traveler, and not the young backpacker set which I was among in Mongolia. Its still a good read, but should not be the lone source of travel info. about this magnificent country.

While providing good information for things that have not changed, the book is out of date. For those seeking to visit Mongolia in the near future, you will need additional up to date sources. Having said that there is a lot on information in this well organized guide such as history, geography, places to visit, to name only a few.
