What you can get abroad for the price of a UK home

Earlier this month, we reported that the average house price in the UK has reached a record £307,033.

What can that sort of money buy in other parts of the world? For less than the UK average, you can bag beautiful villas in some great locations. That 1 bed flat in Finsbury Park might have great transport links, but does it have a swimming pool and sea views?

We pick five properties you could own abroad for the price of a property in Britain:

1. Ko Pha-Ngan, Thailand – 3 Bed Villa
