My name is Sumiyabazar (Sumya for short), I am 36 years old, and I worked as an editor/translator for an English language weekly newspaper of Mongolia for more than 10 years. When I was working for the newspaper, I had many experiences to fix interviews, arrange private tours, accommodation, and transportation for visiting foreign TV crews in Mongolia. I like traveling, camping, driving off-road, go fishing, picnicking, cooking, go clubbing, and hanging out with friends. I was born and raised in Ulaanbaatar, so that’s why I know this city very well. I also offer homestays to the travelers through Airbnb.com. Also, I had several Couchsurfing experiences, mostly by hosting travelers. Read reviews here. My Facebook, Twitter, Tripadvisor ,Linkedin, Google+ profiles. (Whatsapp/Wechat: +97699129129)

I live in Ulaanbaatar, and run my own workshop that makes yurt canvas, horse saddles, and sell them all at the Narantuul market. I like to cook Mongolian barbecues especially with red hot stones, both khorkhog and grill. I hosted a number of European travelers at my home on the outskirt of Ulaanbaatar. I have skills in organizing long-term horse trekking tours around Central Mongolia. (Tel: 99058655)
My name is Jack from New Delhi. I’m 38 years old. I have been living in Ulaanbaatar for more than a decade, so I know Ulaanbaatar city a lot. I work as a manager at an Indian food restaurant in Ulaanbaatar. When friends gather, we cook together both Mongolian and Indian food, but home style, not restaurant style. I like to share my own experiences with travelers, meet with interesting people, and make friends with them. (Whatsapp/Wechat: +97695131273)
