Chão - the floor indoors. Terra, rua, calçada, etc. - outdoors
You know how in Spanish the word suelo is synonymous with floor and ground? Is this the same case for chão?

What is the difference between floor and ground?
Floor is the ground in a house or building. Ground is the ground outside in nature.
