In a country where addresses are scarce, signs are few and far between and most of the country’s pasturelands remain unaddressed, Mongolia has proved notoriously difficult for travellers to navigate. Tourists are often left relying on local landmarks to find their way around – even in the country’s capital, Ulaanbaatar.
To help solve this, Lonely Planet is joining forces with what3words to marry expert travel advice with innovative location technology, enabling travellers to pinpoint locations with exact precision.
what3words is a simple way to talk about location. The company has divided the world into a grid of 3m x 3m squares and assigned each one a unique 3-word address. It means anyone can accurately find any location, anywhere in the world, more quickly, easily and with less ambiguity than any other system.
Now, in recognition of the game-changing technology which is set to revolutionize the way people navigate when they’re on the road, Lonely Planet for the first time will include the three-word addresses for each of the listings in the newest edition of its guidebook to Mongolia.
