    I like Australia as an investment location :D

    USD doesn't buy you quite as much here at the moment though with the strong AUD.

    I'd immediately convert it to Aussie dollars and go shopping :)

    Sweet dreams ... = It's NOT enough !!!.
    For example: an apartment in Warsaw, Poland costs $ 2400AUD + per sqm.
    Warsaw is the second most expensive place to invest in EU after London !!.
    :D

    For that amount I'd invest in an inner city pad- good quality large studio or possibly one bedder in the Potts Point/Elizabeth Bay area.
    Yields aren't bad at all at the moment and it really is a great spot in Sydney, and yet so convenient to it all.

    I probably should say why I'd invest in Penang because there are plenty of other places where CG would be better.

    Penang is a wonderfully eclectic Asian mix of cultures and a fabulous place to have a holiday. I'd like a nice place there either at Batu Ferringhi on the beach or in old Georgetown that can be rented out to holiday makers. Maybe that way I'd get a few weeks there myself a bit more regularly than I do now. :)
