Here is the cost of our recent trip from Irkutsk Russia to Ulan Bator Mongolia. I post this a day after I posted my Russian Trip Expense Report, which was my most popular post yet, looks like people are more interested in how much something costs, rather than hearing about how good/bad something is, so here goes.
Note: these prices are the total for 2 people, doing this trip solo would cost exactly half the price.
Mongolian Trip Expenses
- Visas £0
- Train £218
- Accommodation £37
- Food and other £60
Per person £157.5
Cost per day (per person) £31.5
The “other” in “Food and other” applies to anything from Tooth paste, to insect repellent.
The train into Mongolia consisted of 2 nights accommodation on the train, in a follow up post I’ll include the cost of the train from Mongolia to China
Fact: Vegetables and fruit are practically unheard of in Mongolia, if you’re a vegetarian don’t think “meh, like I care, I’ll simply eat plain rice”, rice isn’t meat!, so therefore it’s unheard of.
