We'll stop at a range of different eateries, exploring the flavours of both the historic old town and off the beaten track to more locally-known areas, to give us a full smorgasbord of a foodie experience. If you're up for keeping the evening going, you're free to make your way to one of the many lively rooftop bars, buzzy nightclubs or cocktail lounges to toast your final night in Bangkok.
