Language

Official language of Mongolia is Khalkha Mongolian spoken by 90% of total population. Khalkha is written with Cyrillic alphabet. In western part of the country, the Kazakh and Tuvan languages, among others, are also spoken. Russian is the most frequently spoken foreign language in Mongolia, followed by English, though English has been gradually replacing Russian as the second language and is widely spoken in the cities. Recently, Mongolia changed its primary foreign language to be English, seeing not only as a way of communicating but also an opportunity to open ways to the wider world. Korean has been gaining popularity as tens of thousands of Mongolians study and work in South Korea. As the language of the south neighboring country, interest in Chinese has been growing lately. Japanese is also popular among young people. A number of older educated Mongolians speak some German, as they studied in the former East Germany, while a few speak other languages from the former Eastern Bloc. Besides that, many young Mongolians are fluent in the Western European languages as they study or work in foreign countries including Germany, France, Spain, Italy etc.

Currency

The tögrög or tugrik (Mongolian:төгрөгtögrög; sign: ; code: MNT) is the official currency of Mongolia.  Currently, the lowest denomination in regular use is the 10-tögrög note and the highest is the 20,000-tögrög

Banks and ATM

There are plenty of ATMs in Ulaanbaatar at Khan Bank and Trade and Development Bank branches, where you can usually pull tugriks (pronounced “too-grk”) from your home bank account (depending on your bank). Khan Bank, which has branches in every aimag center, is the best bet to find an ATM outside of Ulaanbaatar. Banks in Ulaanbaatar and the province capitals can often change your money and will sometimes cash traveler’s cheques (which are not recommended) into tugriks, but it may be safest to change your money in Ulaanbaatar if you plan to be in remote areas.

The Trade and Development Bank has plonked down ATMs at a few key locations in Ulaanbaatar, Darkhan and Erdenet. These ATMs accept Visa and MasterCard and work most of the time, allowing you to withdraw up to T400, 000 per day. Because most of the Golomt Bank branches are open 24 hours, they don’t have ATMs (just give your card to the teller). Ordinary ATM cards issued from your bank at home probably won’t work; try to get a ‘debit’ card linked to your bank account. It should be associated with a credit card company.

Telecommunication

Mongolia uses the followig GSM frequencies: GSM 900 / GSM 1800. When travelling, make sure that your phone supports the GSM frequency of the country you’re traveling to. Usually the supported GSM frequencies are printed on the box of your phone as well as its manual.

Electricity

Voltage:

The voltage in Mongolia is 220 V which is the same voltage used in China, Greece, Russia, South Korea, and the United Arab Emirates.

220 V has an advantage over lower voltage such as the 110 V that it is cheaper to transmit. On the other hand, 220 V is more dangerous than lower voltages.

Plug / Socket Type (s) in use In Mongolia

The plugs used in Mongolia are C or E. Moreover you can use a universal plug adapter or converter.

Plugs/sockets are usually an issue when it comes to traveling, so always make sure you travel with a universal plug adapter.

Public Transport

Ulaanbaatar city is a compact city which is easy to travel around. Different means of transport including  buses, minibus, taxi are available for your easy mobilization.
