What are the items that I should bring with me because they’re not available (or are too expensive) where I am going?
You can buy any everyday items in Ulaanbaatar, but at a much higher price.
High-quality clothing is hard to find; most of the clothing is inexpensive Korean or Chinese cotton shirts, jeans and shoes.
Good coffee is also difficult to locate in UB. You can get a coffee maker, but Mongolians prefer to drink instant coffee.
Will anyone have particular trouble finding clothes that fit?
Larger-sized shoes and clothing can be difficult to find.
