Whether it is by boat, bus, taxi or tuk tuk, getting back to your hotel after a day tramping around the city is simple.
A word of advice though, make sure your cabs are metered and that you establish the price with the tuk tuk driver before you commence your journey. Otherwise you could be in for a horrible surprise and an empty wallet. We got smart – one taxi driver reduced his fare (to what it should have been) on the condition that on the way we got out at a mall to ‘buy him ‘something’. We got out of the taxi.
Tuk tuks can also be good to get around, however, nothing moves quickly in rush hour, except perhaps the scooters which are prevalent in large numbers all over south-east Asia.
