How Big is Thailand in Comparison to the United States, Germany, Japan and UK?

 

A common question that travelers have when planning a trip to a foreign country is “how big is X country in comparison to where I’m from?” Well, let us show you just how big Thailand is when compared to the United States and some other key countries/regions around the world. Of course, travelers should also consider that transportation infrastructures vary greatly amongst countries, and just because it’s possible to cover a certain distance in one’s own country doesn’t mean that travelers should expect to cover the same ground in Thailand.

Thailand is 513,120 square kilometers or 198,115 square miles
