Where I stayed
All 8 of us piled into the minivan and headed off to the Nadaam festival. I was really excited about this as I had read really some great things and it was meant to give us the task of Mongolia, as we no longer are going to the mainland Mongolia. To say it was a little underwhelming is a bit of an understatement, sadly it is one of those things that has been stripped away and changed for the tourist and all that made it good doesn't exist
That morning we just wonder around the grasslands, had nice traditional breakfast in our Ger and then made our way back to the hostel in Hohhot. We headed out that night in Hohhot, looking for the local hotpot as it was meant to be the local specialty. Andy ordered one (As it is China there definitely was no vegie options), but sadly it did not live up to the expectations for him.
We spent our last day here having a wonder around town, Hohhot the town is not the reason people come to Hohhot, but we found a nice park on our wonders. We then hopped on the night bus again to head back to Beijing for the day.
