Our 17 Rai Riceland

Our 17 Rai Riceland outside the family village of Nong Soong Pleui. A rai is 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." (
