The newly built International Airport finally opened

With the ability to handle approximately 3 million passengers a year (double that of the old airport), the addition of 500 new aircraft parking spaces, and the infrastructure to support an increase in domestic as well as budget flights, the airport is a welcome addition to the country’s efforts to grow tourism.

Budget flights to Hong Kong from EZNIS Airways have been relaunched since the airport’s opening, and talks to resume direct flights to the United States are reportedly underway.

 

A modern new museum

 The recently opened Chinggis Khaan Museum offers a beautiful, fresh look at Mongolia’s tumultuous history. With more than 10,000 artifacts spanning over 2,000 years, the museum explores the history of the Mongols and the empire they created – and eventually lost. The museum’s artifacts are presented over eight floors, with six permanent and two temporary exhibition halls. Guided tours are offered in English every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. free of charge.

Mongolian traditional clothing fashion show

Mongolia’s 16 ethnic groups wear about 400 types of different traditional garments called DEEL which sounds like DELL. Children's and adult men's traditional garments are almost identical in design, the only difference is in size, however, the women's traditional garments are quite different in style. Mongolian traditional garments have a well-thought-out design, so there is almost no material left after felting, simple yet effective. Depending on the person's height, 4-6 meters of silk will be used to make traditional garments with 80-90 cm wide silk. In the case of traditional garments l with a circular pattern, more silk is used because the pattern needs to match. In the summer, Mongolians usually wear single-layered or double-layered traditional garments, in the spring and autumn, traditional garments with cotton or lamb wool lining, and in the winter, sheep wool traditional garments. We are presenting different traditional garments that blend traditional traditional garments with modern designs at Dream Gobi Lodge. Singing dunes, camels and so much more of the Gobi.
