There are also the free independent foreign tourists (FITs) that take modes of public transport when travelling around. Although the numbers may be insignificant now, the potential for most visitors to take on such travel is huge. This is an observation I make assessing the number of visitors that use public transport at other similar tourist destinations in the region. Of course, there is a correlation between the standard and quality of facilities available and the travellers and tourists (local and foreign) who use public transport. There is also a positive correlation between such travel and benefits to communities for these are visitors who seek to actively interact with local people, buying their products and experiencing local lifestyles.
