Ulaanbaatar is great. At night use common sense and stick to where the people are. Seoul Street has a ton of nightlife and karaoke. Naraantuul, the outdoor market, is the best place to go for shopping, but be smart. I've never personally been pickpocketed there, but have heard stories, especially when it's crowded. It's best to keep your money in a zipped pocket and keep purchases inside a shopping bag. If I know I'm going to buy something bulky I take my backpack and wear it in front. If you want to really experience Mongolia you need to go to the countryside. Terelj is probably the most tourist friendly, but I'd recommend Aglag Buteelin Hiid, a mediation center founded by an artist monk. It's an easy day trip from the city and off the beaten path for non-Mongolians (you'll definitely want a driver who can also translate). It took us about an hour and a half to walk the trail, and the drive itself is beautiful. A week will be hard. It takes me 2 full days of travel to get here from the States. If you can manage to get out to the Gobi, go. It's an overnight train ride...there's definitely enough closer to Ulaanbaatar to keep you busy a few days though. The only thing I strongly dislike here is winter pollution.

Ulaanbataar is not safe after dark. Keep your wits about you. I have travelled 50+ countries and Ulaanbataar is probably where i felt the most unsafe. The hotels and hostels have signs up making sure you are in before dark. Don't let this deter you though. In a day its fine. I wouldn't spend much time in the city. I did a 4 day 3 night mini gobi tour when I was there. Absolutely beautiful. You get to stay in a yurt in the national park, see some desert and do some sightseeing. All the hotels and things sell trips. One of the best experiences of all my travels.

Ulaanbaatar is not that unsafe. Pickpocketing is the most common crime, but as long as you're careful with your belongings, it should be fine. There are no severe crimes around! As for areas to see: check out the Terelj NP, the Hustai NP, Karakorum, the White Lakes. You'll need a tour for that, as mongolian sites are all remote and only accessible by 4WD. If you're running on public transport only, you can take a bus both to the Terelj or Karakorum, from the dragon bus station. Prepare to be ripped off.
