- The city public bus is affordable but not really reliable
- You could also hail a Taxi or use the Grab App
- Car rental are located in the city and airport.
- However, a private tour service would make more sense with no worries about driving yourself around unfamiliar territory. And don’t forget, having to find parking!
In addition to transport, there will be a personal guide too. You can book for 1 or more days.
