Who else is on this trip

Just wondering if there is anyone else on here going on this trip

On this trip, just getting the visa for Mongolia (dont think we need one for China?)

Arriving in Beijing on Sep 17th to spend time there before joining the group for travel to Mongolia.

I was in Mongolia in 2012 and really looking forward to going back. Some-one will be sharing a room/ger with me!!! Managed to get my visa in London last week and now need to organise money. Looking forward to meeting everyone on the trip. Is anyone going to attempt seeing anything in Beijing?

I was thinking of tsking Dollars as they sem to be more widely accepted. Anbody got any views on how much or what?

Here is a Web Site that offers some help on money in Mongolia:  https://www.lonelyplanet.com/mongolia/a/nar-gr/money-and-costs/357015

Much of the information does not apply to our situation because our "room & board" and transportation is already taken care of upfront.

Great to see some responses on here. Where are people from? I'm coming from New Zealand (where getting a visa was the easiest I've ever experienced, the consulate here is so friendly and helpful, the visas were processed in a day and back on a courier to me immediately). My partner will be flying in from Papua New Guinea via Tokyo.

Re money, I tried to buy Mongolian money and they don't sell it outside of Mongolia so it will be crisp new US dollars and find somewhere in UB to change them before we head off.

Anyone who is going on this trip? Let me know.

Exodus have just said not to bother with dollars, UK sterling fine

 

Arriving the 17th from Texas for an added 4 day extension in Beijing before joing the group for Mongolia. Anyone else on a Beijing extension?

Visa hell in Washington D.C earlier this year. LONG, LONG wait times.

Can't wait to meet everyone and look forward to some great photo ops.

Is anyone travelling from Heathrow? If so look out for me... shortish hair, in my 60s and with a pink rucksack. I would hate to get lost at Beijing airport! Looking forward to seeing you all. B

I am. Ursula, Short with short grey hair. Lime green rucksack although really hope to be also with red case in Beijing
