LONELY PLANET names MONGOLIA its #1 country to visit in 2024 followed by Chile in the fourth position. Lonely Planet says it has awarded Mongolia the gold medal as its ideal for seekers of ‘wide-open spaces, adventures, and culture’. Its capital, Ulaanbaatar, is also ‘teeming with people and unique attractions’.

But Mongolia’s doors are open and a tourism campaign has eased visa restrictions through 2025.’ See the article below.
