Minibus is a convenience way to travel between city and remote area. However, the van is small, mostly not equiped with air-conditioning and always crowded during peak hours. Just pay to the driver upon hop-on the van, please prepare some small change (some small notes and coins). There are mini buses in the remote area too, but many of them don't have a valid license, for safety reason, please do not take this kind of mini bus.
