As in most rural Thai provinces there are typically songtaews that follow established routes around the provincial capital and between towns within the province. Songtaews, motorbike taxis, and some form of tuk tuk are usually available for private charter as well. If you want to travel further afield ask your hotel if they can arrange a car and driver for the day or direct you to the local bus services.
