Getting Around

Taking a songthaew (10-15B within the downtown district) is the easiest way to travel around Nakhon Si Thammarat. The pick up trucks are scattered throughout town -- just wave at one to get them to stop. Motorcycle taxis are also available but as there are so many songthaews, there's less of a need to use motorcycles. It is a good idea to agree on a fare beforehand and please always wear a helmet.
