Ane de Preez is originally from South Africa, but has been living in Thailand for the last four years. I’m always festinated by the ex-pats' perspective of a place because I feel it’s very different to that of a tourist or a local. That's especially true in a place like Thailand, which has been visited by so many travellers – myself included – for a few weeks or months, but not to many call it home.
Something I also love about this interview is that you can hear the traffic noise from Ane’s apartment – that sound of passing motorbikes took me right back to sitting out in balmy Thai evenings drinking Chang beers.
In this conversation we lift the lid on the places behind the Bangkok party central, the famous beaches, or night markets, and discuss what it's like to travel through a more undiscovered but truly fascinating Thailand.
