Private taxis are available from any town/city to the next at negotiable prices. They are often available at a daily rate to drive around bigger cities and either your guest house can arrange this or they are usually found next to the markets of any town. Around towns you can choose to travel by moto-dup or tuk-tuk and again, negotiate hard. Don’t pay until you get to your destination. You can choose to rent a motorbike yourself but this is not advisable unless you are very familiar with both riding a bike and driving styles in S-E Asia.
