Thailand- Land Measurement

Land in Thailand is measured in rai, ngan and wah. Land prices are expressed in baht per rai or baht per wah for smaller plots.

Thailand has a unique land measurement unitary system - The two basic units are the "Wa" which is equal to 4 square metres and the "Rai" which is equal to 400 square wa or 1,600 square metres (1.6 hectare)

Metric units of measurement are recognised by Thai estate agents and land agents (Left) but Imperial measurements are totally lost on the majority. An acre in to a Thai in Thailand doesn't mean a thing! So either "Think Metric" or get used to the "Rai".

1 sq wah = 4 sqm

1 acre = 2.471 rai or 43,560 sq ft

1 ngan = 100 wah or 400 sq m

1 hectare = 6.25 rai or 10,000 sq m

1 Rai = 4 Ngan or 1600 sq m
