Lotus Children’s Centre
The Centre is located on the hill on the east side of the unpaved road. When approaching the Centre, once you see the lotus flower on the blue gate, then you will have arrived at the Lotus Children’s Centre!
To use the bus network in UB you must have a bus card. You can buy a bus card, and top it up, at newspaper stalls and small shops next to bus stops, just look out for the purple ‘U Money’ signs. The card costs 3,600 MNT, and you should top it up when you buy it. Each bus journey costs 500MNT, and transfers are free within 30 minutes if you correctly ‘tap out’ when getting off the bus.
Beginning from Sukhbaatar Square, you can take the No.1 bus or any trolleybus eastbound that runs along Peace Avenue. You should get off at Jukov (Жуковын Музей) which is the first stop after the Kempinski Hotel intersection. From Jukov, change to the Ч:36 Jukov – Gachuurt (Жуковын Музей – Гачуурт) bus. Take this bus until the last stop, which is Gachuurt village. From the bus stop, walk 100 metres back from where the bus came to the orange supermarket. From there walk 1km north along the unpaved road, then you will see the Centre on the hill on your right hand side.
An offical taxi from the centre of Ulaanbaatar should cost around 30,000 MNT each way.
For a taxi you can call Suvdaa, who is a driver with an official taxi company but also good friend of Lotus, and she knows how to get to us. Her number is (+976) 94941278.
