Often referred to as the ‘Land of Blue Skies’, visits to this unique region are really rewarding, giving you the opportunity to delve first-hand into the culture and day-to-day life here. The vast emptiness of Mongolia is one of the reasons so many travellers enjoy visiting – you get to really experience the wilderness. While there isn’t much architecture here, there are some remnants of traditional monasteries and temples which are classic in design and well-worth visiting if you’re close by.
