Getting around

Getting around is simple as motorbike taxis and tuk-tuks are everywhere. Sri Racha isn't Pattaya or Phuket though, so they won't hassle you as you walk by. They also won't speak much English, so it's a good idea to have a guidebook or map handy to point the way. Tuk-tuk trips around town will cost at least 30B; for longer journeys agree a price in advance. For those wanting more action, Pattaya is 40kms south.
