It’s a good idea to rent a bicycle or motorbike to explore the island as it gives you the freedom to move at your own pace. There are a few buses you can use to get around, but the signs and stops are written in Chinese so you will need someone to translate for you. Look for BRT buses, which are express buses that are modern and comfortable. Your other option is to use taxis to get from A to B. Taxis are fair and affordable.
