ULAANBAATAR, Mongolia: I'm a city girl.So I definitely had a few reservations when my husband suggested a vacation in the wilds of central Mongolia.I ended up loving every minute in Mongolia, a country steeped in history, stunning scenery and welcoming locals.Mongolia, a country of 3 million people slightly smaller than Alaska, is one of the most sparsely populated places in the world.You can go hours, even days, without seeing another human while traveling through Mongolia's countryside. Like most of Mongolia, it felt like we had traveled back to a time before humans as the only other visitors were a group of horses splashing and lounging about in the calm waters.For a glimpse of desert dunes: Elsen Tasarkhai is a sand strip located in Bulgan Province. While we didn't have time to explore Mongolia's famed Gobi Desert, we made a quick stop at this 50-mile (80-kilometer) stretch of golden hills for a relaxing tour via camels.Ulaanbaatar is Mongolia's bustling, traffic-jammed capital city, but tourist attractions are few.
