Although the streets are arranged in a logical and neat fashion, increasing in number sequentially. The locals do not use the number system, and will often accept your ride without knowing exactly where to go. So make sure they understand where you want to go before getting into the tuk tuk/taxi/moto. Make sure you bring a map and point it out.
Also like most SE Asian cities you will have to negotiate your fare with the driver. This can be a fun experience at times.
A tuk tuk should be 1 USD for relatively short distances like 2km. And 2-3 USD for longer distances. A moto is roughly half that price, and a taxi maybe double. These are only rough guidlines, so you your common sense.
Just to give some indication of the prices to/from the airport. I paid 3 USD to get to the airport from St. 95 (via tuk tuk) and 9 USD to go to St. 104 (via taxi)
