Standard Land Measurements in Thailand – Talang Wah, Ngan & Rai
Standard Land Measurements in Thailand
The common units of Land Measurement in Thailand are Rai, Ngan, Talang Wah (Square Wah) & Talang Mett (Square Metre). Land prices are usually expressed in baht per Rai and baht per Ngan or Tarlng Wah (for smaller plots under 1 Rai). However, most foreign real estate agents list the land size in square meters (Sq.m or m2) for standard house, villa or condominium properties.
For building floor area or house area (under roof), the area size is usually expressed in square meters (Sq.m or m2).
1 Rai = 4 Ngan (or 400 Talang Wah or 1600 Sq.m.)
1 Ngan = 100 Talang Wah (or 400 Sq.m.)
1 Talang Wah = 4 Sq.m.
1 Talang Mett = 1 Sq.m.
1 Acre = 2.5 Rai (approx.)
1 Hectare = 6.25 Rai (approx.)
Please note: Most title deeds in Thailand do not indicate the land size in numerical digits. The numeric measurement is indicated thus (#Rai – #Ngan – # Talang Wah & #/10). The size is indicated in Thai font so unless you can read Thai font, please ask someone to translate the land size into numerical digits and units. Also, the same applies to the title deed number.
