To get around visiting the temples, you have a few options. You can ride on the back of a motorbike or hire either a tuk tuk or car with driver. The back of a motorbike is cheap and looks like it gives a good adrenalin kick but comfort and safety... not so sure. A car offers all the comforts of home but that's also it's drawback - it offers all the comforts of home. ( Need another transportations Click Here )
The fun of the tuk tuk
I found the tuk tuk to be the perfect combination. You can sit and stretch out, you're protected from the sun, with the flaps down protected from the rain, you get a great breeze as you zip along, with a good driver you feel safe (although there are inevitably a few mildly 'harrowing' moments regardless of how you get about) and the ride is comfortable enough. The maximum speed they can go - given the small engine and road conditions - is slow enough that you can take in the cool stuff as you drive along but fast enough to cover a surprising amount of ground in a day.
