Tan Tam Mei

Thailand Correspondent

Tan Tam Mei reports for The Straits Times from Bangkok, where she has been since June 2021. She spent her first month in Thailand devoid of most human contact as the city came under quasi-lockdown. She is slowly but surely re-learning how to interact with fellow humans, and enjoys visiting farms, museums and grocery aisles during her free time. Tam Mei hopes she can tell stories of Thailand that go beyond Singaporeans' perceptions of the kingdom as a shopping, food and massage haven.
