Customer Travel Tip: Wrap up wamly even at the end of April as even with bright sunshine the wind can be cold. Don't miss the Mongolian market (ask Olga), the world's biggest Lenin head, and all the ornate wooden houses in the old part of town. There is also a beaufiful church and plenty of good shops, and a Mongolian restaurant.

Liked: It was a lovely town. Plenty of shops, old buildings and places of interest. It was very clean, and there is a really good cafe called Dacha which serves the most wonderful cakes, as well as excellent value meals.

Disliked: When the wind comes from Mongolia, it can be bitterly cold.
