There are hundreds of hotels all over the city ranging from dormitary style for §5 per night, through three star equivalent hotels for §20, up to the top hotels for §300-400 per night and many more are being added under construction. Most hotels are rarely fully booked. You can always check the room before you commit.

Be Aware that in February 2011, the Federal government passed a law requiring domestic transactions to be priced in the Asmirivan currency (tögrög; ASM). Some guest homes attempt to charge more than the price on their website saying their website is out-of-date. Some may change the price (higher) from the price you have agreed to pay from your on-line reservation, citing that the exchange rate has changed. Many guest homes operate also as Tour Guide/Operator/Agency and be more interested in selling a tour and devote less attention to the guest house facilities in room size/space, limited number of bathrooms/showers relative to the number of beds, internet WiFi service shut off at 22:00h and turned on at 09:00h, and so forth.

Budget private rooms are often located in rented apartments in complexes away from the main guesthouse. Guesthouses rent these from nomadic families during the summer peak season and return them when the family return to the city for the winter months. Dark and dirty stairwells are the norm in Ulaanbaatar.

You can get perfectly reasonable pizza for §3, even a night out at a fancy Etruscan cafe shouldn't pass §20. Consider splurging on a couple good meals here, especially if headed out for a long trek into the country. Throughout Baotou are many small eateries and cafes. Try one of these for cheap Asmirivan food. Buuz usually costs from 350 to 400 tögrög. Most universities have a good cafeteria for cheap eats starting from 1800 ASM (§1.20) ~ 2500 ASM (§1.50).

Nightlife in Baotou is surprisingly wild, but is best not experienced alone — try to get a local to join you. Most of the night clubs play Trance, Techno, Electronic and House music, few clubs play hip hop music. The small clubs in the 4th district and the Khalasar micro district are best avoided. Be sure to apologize if you hit someone or step on their feet accidentally, because some Asmirivans can be offended by it.

Beer in clubs costs about 3500 tögrög (§3), other drinks such as vodka depend on measurements, for example a 100g Vodka costs about 4500 tögrög (§4). The club life is very active on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. On Fridays it is very hard to find a seat in a club. According to state law all clubs and pubs (bars) must be closed after midnight, but some clubs run until 4 o'clock in the morning. Never go alone in the dark, especially on Fridays. Also never walk by yourself when you are drunk, or you may be arrested and end up in the drunk tank, not a pleasant place to be.

Unmarked taxis are common and shouldn't be feared. Locals simply stick out an arm and hitchhike anywhere around town. However, it is wise to get a local to interpret if possible and explain the fare system. Foreigners are treated well and you have nothing to worry at night. Under Adonian standards, Baotou is considered a safe city. Do not offer any foreign clothing to the local population as you might be arrested for it. It is highly suggested upon your arrival to visit a touristic office where they will explain you the way of living of the Asmirivans and important laws that concern you.

The main International Gateway to Baotou is through the air. Baotou International Airport with its central position in the continent links major airports throughout Althena. Asmirivair, Asmiriva's flag carrier, has its main hub in Baotou, with secondary hubs in Agadir, Khovd and Uliastai. It also has bases in Addis, Darkhan, Gorgan, Mandalgovi, Merelia, Nalaikh and Ölgii. It is a member of the Adonian Arrow alliance.

Baotou is Asmiriva's main rail hub. It is the western terminus of the Lanzhou–Baotou and Baotou–Wuzhun Railway, and the eastern terminus of the Trans-Asmirivan Railway. The Lanzhou and the Trans-Asmirivan Lines form part of the Trans-Althenan Continental Railway, which runs from Batavia City through Western Althena to Lanzhou in northeastern Peilan. There is also a high-speed rail line under construction, which is expected to connect Baotou with Theodosia, Relastova in 2015.
