1 Rai = How Many Square Metres

7 posts in this topic

I am considering buying some land soon to sit on so that me and my thai wife can return to Thailand in approx 5 years time but I am unsure of the measurements converting from 1 rai into sqm. Can anyone tell me how many sqm in a rai.

Thanks slippery.........................

1 rai = 1,600 sqm

a traditional unit of land area in Thailand. The rai is now considered to equal exactly 1600 square meters, which is 0.16 hectare or approximately 0.3954 acre. The rai is divided into 4 ngan. The unit is called the hai in northern Thailand and the lai in Laos. The word means "field," that is, an upland field rather than a rice paddy.

1 ตารางวา = 4 ตารางเมตร

1 sq-wa = 4 sqm

1 ไร่ = 1,600 ตารางเมตร

1 rai = 1600 sqm

1 เอเคอร์ = 2.5 ไร่

1 acre = 2.5 rai

It's the same as "square-wah", 1 sq-wah = 4 sq m

1 Talang Mett = 1 Square Meter = 10.7 Square Feet

1 Talang Wah = 4 Square Meters = 42.7 Square Feet

1 Ngan = 100 Talang Wah = 400 Square Meters = 4,277

Square Feet

1 Rai = 4 Ngan = 400 Talang Wah = 1,600 Sqare Meters =

17,108 Square Feet

1 Acre = 2.5 Rai = 10 Ngan = 1,000 Talang Wah = 4,000

Square Meters = 42,772 Square Feet
