The Sunday Times looks at what is available for buyers of foreign property farther afield from hot spot Iskandar.
We look at three price brackets - those with a budget of $300,000, $500,000 or more than $1 million.
Ms Aliwassa Pathnadabutr, managing director at property consultancy CB Richard Ellis in Thailand, says you can get a good-sized one-bedroom unit of about 50 sq m to 60 sq m in a prime downtown location such as Sukhumvit, Central Lumpini or Silom-Sathorn.
Mrs Doris Tan of Jones Lang LaSalle notes that in Australia, A$250,000 (S$286,000) can get you a one-bedder but only in Brisbane or the nearby Gold Coast.
Another option would be a bigger unit in Anchor Land Holdings' Monarch Parksuites freehold condominium in Paranaque City, Manila. Prices start from $202,000 for a one- bedder.
Budget: $500,000 to $600,000
DTZ Singapore research head Lee Lay Keng says that in central London, two-bedroom units could range from about £300,000 (S$616,000) to £450,000.
Look out for bustling residential neighbourhoods such as Bayswater and Paddington.
Mr David Poppleton, Savills head of residential projects in Australia, says that this sum will get you a small one-bedroom unit without parking in the inner city in Australia.
In Melbourne, this price could fetch a one- or two-bedroom unit in the central business district and perhaps a one-bedder or studio unit in Sydney.
Over in Manila, you will be able to find two-bedroom condo units in high-end developments in good locations, said Mr Michael McCullough, managing director at Savills associate firm KMC MAG Group Philippines.
Budget: More than $1 million
In this price bracket, Mr Richard Levene of Colliers International suggests The Ladbroke Grove, a mixed-use development in North Kensington. One-bedroom apartments of 540 sq ft start from £535,000 while two-bedders begin at £724,500.
Another London option is The Nova Building by Land Securities, on prime Buckingham Palace Road. Units range from studio units at 370 sq ft to three-bedders at 1,111 sq ft, with prices from £595,000.
Or head to Sky Gardens around Vauxhall, where the smallest unit is a one-bedroom unit going for £734,000.
In Thailand, you could consider the 50-storey Marque Sukhumvit by Major Residences on the main Sukhumvit Road, near Sukhumvit 39, opposite the Emporium shopping complex.
Prices start from $1.28 million for two-bedroom units ranging from 1,335 sq ft to 1,464 sq ft.
Or if you want the services of a hotel along with your apartment, look at The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Bangkok , in the mixed-use development MahaNakhon, by Thai luxury developer Pace Development.
The residences start from the 23rd floor to the penthouse Sky Residences on the 73rd floor. They range from 120 sq m for a two-bedroom unit to 850 sq m for a five-bedroom unit. Prices start from $1.4 million.
