Mongolian girls

We were taken to a restaurant whereby the mongolian girls entertained us with their dances.

Such beautiful costumes.


So sweet and pretty.


My tour guide with one of the girls.



Mongolian dance began as a ritual performance imitating the movement and manner of deities, mystical creatures and legendary heroes. Shamanist perception of the surrounding world and worshipping of Mother Nature influenced the style of ancient dancing, as well as the shape and pattern of clothing and accessories.

This was such an unforgettable experience.

  2. Hmmm... I suspect those 'Mongolian' girls are actually Han Chinese. Remember the Olympic Opening Ceremony?
