Bus it from the airport
The city is far from the airport but before heading to the pre-paid taxi counter, check out the bus routes. There are volunteers and bus conductors standing in front of the bus station, directing passengers into the correct buses. Find out if one goes close to your destination. It's a cheaper and greener way to travel.
