Getting Around

Shared taxis and poda-podas (minibuses) cost Le2000 per short hop and run on fixed routes around town. You can also bargain for a charter taxi (expect to pay around Le20,000 for a short journey, such as Lumley to town), which feels like the lap of luxury after being squashed into the back of a shared ride with four or five others. The motorbike taxis, known as okadas (Le2,000 per short ride), can be downright reckless: ride with caution, or even better, don't ride at all.
