I would like to apologise for the long period of no blogging on this channel. I have since then realised that I have not blogged, due to well you can guess – the cliched writers’ block. I’m sorry to everyone I thought was being lazy..I now totally understand. m(_ _)m
For still being here, and for coming here – to the new readers! 🙂 I have found a wonderful site dedicated to the new generation interested in Mongolia – ub life! Not sure about the articles, but it featured some great fashion figures in the urban Mongolian scene! If anything is happening you can find these guys there. If you want to just see what the Mongolian millennials like to work towards check out the Mongolian Fashionkillas Facebook page!
The fashion scene is starting to be covered by some great people! So happy (*squeeeeeeee)＼(￣▽￣)/ Check out this article from Afar! – “You need to know about Mongolia’s Fashion Scene” and Mongolia got featured in the Monocle May Issue! Have you seen their three page analysis of Mongolia – the political ambition and climate, the news stations and even the wave of generation in Mongolia – I’m so happy! *ヽ(◕ヮ◕ヽ)
Can’t say how much I love Mongolia being in International news for being good, for being amazing, for their growing presence in the World right now fro something positive – not for being poor, for being in need and not for being different. Yes – we are proud of our Nomadic culture – it’s unique, it is beautiful and we have rich history, beautiful country and a young generation full of go getter! (◠﹏◠✿)
For Mongolians, the culture scene of ballet and opera had a dedicated spot in societies pages. Dedication, endurance, the long hours of practice is well noted when it comes to Ballet. Mongolia’s culture in the classical arts (Classical music, opera, ballet etc.) stemmed from the Soviets, during Mongolia’s long tenure as a satellite state.
The Mongolian Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet close to the Mongolian parliament was built with Soviet help. The dancers were sent to Russia to learn the art of the classical in the hundreds, and it still shows today with many of the artists on stage performing the traditional Russian style. There are agreements with several theatres in place such as Russia and Milan.
The theatre is one of the most popular tourist attraction of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, with visitors from the rest of the world such as Europe, Russia and Pacific Asia visiting regularly to perform on stage and to watch. The theatre showcases opera and ballet on Saturday and Sunday evenings, with special shows over the weekday evenings. Often, the theatre is full so book in advance!
Considering the Mongolian’s pride in the language, it is no surprise that there have always been a legion authors, screenwriters, songwriters etc, and ballet is not any different. There are original plays and opera such as “Chingis Khan”.
Why not give it a go when you’re visiting?

I think I can proudly say that the tourism industry in Mongolia is slowly rising. Just a few days ago Vogue posted an article about visiting Mongolia. The youth is friendly and we are working towards our identity.
“-One of the world’s most sparsely populated countries—by venturing into the wild with epic horse rides through the valleys, climbing up to Buddhist villages and temples, hiking through the mountains, luxurious yurt stays under a canvas of stars, and homey dishes that are truly farm to table, one finds the perfect antidote to the intensity of, say, Shanghai or Moscow.” Vogue CLAIRE VOLKMAN
The migrating sand dunes, the clear air so you can see the stars so bright in the sky, the berries on the forest floor, the high cliffs of which you have to drive under, the fresh healing springs deep within the mountains untouched by the modern culture – so busy, in such a hurry, so crowded. There is barely enough outside the city. You can go for miles, and hours without seeing a yurts and towns. The locals tell you directions by mountains and valleys. It is a beautiful country and it is only a start guys! Please come and visit. We are a friendly lot!
