The airport is 9km from town. You can take bus 9 from the old central market; a taxi costs RM15.
Most city buses leave from the middle of the old central market, on the Jln Hilir Pasar side, or from opposite the Bazaar Buluh Kubu.
Trishaws can still be seen on the city streets, though they are not as common as they once were. Prices are negotiable but reckon on around RM5 and upwards for a short journey of up to 1km.
