4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Fons on 23 May 2011
Format: Paperback
This guide is the best guide for travel in Mongolia, but should be combined with another guide such as the LP for maximum effect. The guide has a vast background section with which it gives a real feeling to the country. The guide is low on actual information about places and locations. Two thirds of the book are used for background information.

The book lacks GPS coordinates and locations of sights are not clearly indicated and this book alone would not suffice to locate them. It is a well written guide, but the book clearly needs an overhaul of the travel section. It is not up to par with other Bradt guides and the guide certainly has a more dated feel than the date of publication suggests.

I found this guide to be an excellent read both for the background information on Mongolia and for its authoritative sections on the provinces. Most travellers like me want to go to the countryside to experience nomadic life and to be in touch with the ancient traditions of nomadic herders. The in depth knowledge given on wildlife with conservation awareness was also of particular interest to me. Not all guide books explain how rare species might be better protected. Eco-tourism is well covered and on the whole this guide is a great read - I thoroughly recommend it. As a Mongolian living overseas I was impressed and delighted to see how my country is portrayed by the Bradt guide to Mongolia - congratulations to its author Jane Blunden.

I must confess that I have not (yet) visited Mongolia but after reading Jane Blundens Guide I feel as if I have already been there. Just One of the many reasons why this Guide can be considered exceptional is the fact that Jane Blunden manages to transfer her fascination for All Things Mongolian to the reader. It is something of a misnomer to simply call this work a Travel Guide --it is a great read, one that you can dip in & out of and each time you can be certain that you will learn something new about this wonderful Country. This Guide would make an absolutely perfect Christmas Gift. Eamonn Sreenan , Wexford, Ireland.

Format: Paperback
I visited Mongolia for three months in 2011, spending the first two months walking across the Gobi Desert with Bactrian camels and the last month travelling from the south to the north by horse, road and rail. This guidebook set me up very well indeed in terms of understanding Mongolian culture, traditions and history. Such an understanding is incredibly useful, I feel, in a country such as Mongolia, where so much about the place is discovered through experiences rather than sightseeing of the box-ticking variety. It was also of great practical assistance in everything from buying, selling and caring for camels to tipping, and there is a rather helpful phrasebook section at the back. The text boxes, which appear every few pages or so, often contain useful tips or fascinating stories from contributing authors who have, for example, ridden a motorbike across, hunted with eagles in, or volunteered in Mongolia - inspiring accounts that only add to the reader's understanding of the place and the book as a whole, which, ultimately, I found to be a fantastic companion on my travels.
