In town, one of the most popular modes of public transport is by old-fashioned cycle rickshaw (samlor), they cost about the same as motorbike taxis – of course, much slower but definitely safer. If travelling to a national park alone and not by group tour, it is almost mandatory that you have your own car.


From the provincial town there  are non-air conditioned buses available to all province’s districts. There are buses to Suphanburi Town where travellers can stay a pleasant stay before heading to Ayutthaya the next day. Other provinces with buses to are Ratchaburi and Nakhorn Pathom.
