Getting Around Madurai

Madurai is a small town, so walking is a great way to see what the city has to offer-- and it's free. If you're getting tired or travelling further than the town centre, there are plenty of taxis and auto rickshaws available, the rickshaws being the cheaper transportation option of the two. There's also a local bus that runs to and from the airport, but it's rarely on schedule. Another, more expensive, but convenient option is to hire a car with a private driver. Although this is the most expensive way to travel around Madurai, it's a good way to navigate the town because your driver will happily give you tips on where to go and what to see.
