    In NZ we use the metric system.
    1 hectare = 10,000 sqm
    1 rai = 1600 sqm
    therefore 1 ha = 6.25 rai
    1 ha = 2.471 acres
    2.471 acres into 6.25 rai = 2.529
    Therefore 1 acre = 2.529 rai

    Lenss I think you mean a Ngan but here is my 2 bobs worth:
    From a reliable source

    1 sq. wah = 4 sq. m. 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.)

    May I be off the topic a bit please?
    What does "2 bobs" mean? I've heard only "my 2 cents". I guess they are the same (?) but explanation needed!

    What you called 'Da Long Wa' is ตารางวา (= sq. Wa, measurement of area.), while a Wa (วา) is measurement of a lenght.

    1 Wa = 2 M.
    1 sq. Wa = 4 sq M.

    Rai is another measurement of area,
    1 Rai = 400 sq. Wa = 1600 sq. M.

    (so to answer your question, 1 Rai = 400 sqW)

    Your guess is correct.

    A bob is a shilling, old British currency before decimalisation (i.e. change for 240 pennies in a pound, to 100 pennies in a pound). It is equivalent to 5 pence in the new system.

    But IMO, in England, I usually hear 'my sixpence worth' instead. so I think '2 bobs worth' is Australian thing?
