For the uninitiated, a yurt is a portable, typically round tent that is home to many nomadic tribes in Mongolia.

While travelling to Mongolia is almost impossible right now, one can still experience what it's like to live in a yurt right here in Singapore.

Boutique travel agency Beyond Expeditions offers a two-day-one-night (2D1N) experience which is said to be the "most authentic Mongolian adventure" without leaving the island.

Here's what their yurt looks like:
