I am going to end up in Ulaanbaatar (Mongolia) sometime July next summer. I want to know the cheapest/most interesting way to get back home (Phx., AZ). Should I take a train to Vladivostok or Beijing? Or could I travel down Xinjiang, go through Tibet and then leave through India? I've been to Beijing before - it's kind of boring and artificial I think. I look forward to your answer!!! Sorry I didn't mention this earlier. I will have just come from the Trans-Siberian railway, Moscow, St. Petersburg etc. Wow - it's amoazing that Xiao Li did the exact trip I'm planning in reverse! Sorry I didn't mention this earlier.

"I recommend taking the trans-Mongolian railroad from Ulaan Bator to Moscow. I did it in July '99 and loved it. Definitely spend a few days exploring the Lake Baikal region in Siberia. It is gorgeous in the summer. When you get to Moscow it is worth continuing on to Saint Petersburg. When I did it, I then took the train to Helsinki, Finland and flew back to NY from there. You could also continue your trip across Europe over land before returning to the States. If you choose this route, though, be very careful to have the appropriate visa into Russia. I have heard many stories where people had unnecessary headaches at the border. I wish I could do the trip all over again! (In regards to Xinjiang, you should definitely do that another time if you don't this time. I spent two weeks there, and it wasn't nearly long enough)."

"Jeez, that's amazing that you would want to make the trip at all. I just think its cool!"
worldpeace :
"the most direct and cheapest way would be to take the train from Ulaanbaatar to Beijing, then fly from Beijing to Los Angeles, and then take another flight from there to Phoenix. But you say you don't want to go through Beijing. Well, maybe you could go through Shanghai instead. As for Xinjiang, well it would be a great place to travel, but its not exactly on the way. And you can't get from Xinjiang to Tibet or India. You can get from Xinjiang to Pakistan, though, but it takes a long time on very rough mountain roads. You cannot get from Tibet to India. This is impossible. Just getting to Tibet alone is difficult enough."

I watched Superbowl 2007 in complete solitude in Detroit sports bar on Seoul street. This year I cannot find it ESPN-STAR SPORTS tv schedule, the only live sports channel in Ulaanbaatar,Mongolia. What should I do? I have no idea. Please help me if you know how.

atmadick :
"BTW, Do they have cable TV in Mongolia?"
adam k :
"Try to watch on your computer"
yahoohelper :
"If you have internet access, us Sopcast. You basically have to wait until gametime to see if something is going to be on the site, but it does work. If you don't have internet, you're kinda screwed. You might as well re-enact it with the mongols. You can kick field goals with clubs and stuff."
Art D :
"you can always watch it live online"

Winter is finally approaching in Mongolia; snow is predicted in Ulaanbaatar within the next few days.As a result there has been a rush for the Mongolians to buy and settle in new apartments before the full force of the Mongolian Winter hits the city.
