Since there is no continuous road that circles the island completely, an island tour is not to be done in one day. When you combine a roundtrip with several visits, you should allow at least for two to three days.
Left-hand driving, unfamiliar to most of the Europeans, racing Daladalas (public buses), bad roads, which you have to share with motorcycles and bicycles, pedestrians, donkey and ox carts, chickens, cows and other quadrupeds - car driving is not a great pleasure for people who are not used to it. Therefore, it is advisable for tourists to rent a car with driver. For an acceptable price you can go in an air conditioned taxi or minibus to all interesting places of the island.
