By auto-rickshaw[edit]

Auto-rickshaws / tuk-tuks are open rickshaws with (narrow) rear-facing seats, or with two seats facing forward and two backward. They are handy for moving around in the Inner City, since it's easier to see where you're going. Try to find a rickshaw with a well-padded seat, otherwise you will come out bruised and aching.
