The Treasury Department has released a new list of land price appraisals, citing Silom as the most expensive area in Thailand. The new price appraisals will be effective from July 1st onwards. Deputy Finance Minister Wirun Techapaiboon said the ministry has told the Treasury Department to enforce the new price appraisals on July 1st this year until 2015. The new price was scheduled to be enforced in January this year, but was delayed by another six months due to the flood crisis in 2011.

He said the ministry will no longer delay the enforcement of the new price appraisals given the situation in the nation has returned to normal now. Silom will remain the most expensive area in the kingdom, appraised at 850,000 baht per square wa, a 31% increase from the current price of 650,000 baht.
