It is possible to walk around the city on foot, but you usually don’t. During the daytime, the sun is too strong and the maximum limit would be 10 minutes. At night, though, working around the Pub Street, night markets, and riverside, is nice.
Many places rent bicycles at reasonable prices. Some maintain bicycles well, others don’t. With map application in your smartphone, yon can safely explore the city. Note that many roads are unpaved. Make sure to rent mountain bicycles in a good condition if you want to visit remote places.
It is illegal for tourists to rent a motorbike. Although some shops rent motorbikes, you should not risk your trip. In addition to legal issues, please remember that the probability of deaths in motorcycle accidents is very high.
