London

Property doesn't come cheap in London, with $1m only equalling 25.2 square metres. You'll need considerably more to buy this new mews house in Belgravia (pictured), priced at £14.75m.

Don't pack too much if you're moving to Hong Kong. Here, $1m means a home of 20.6 square metres.

NO 1

Monaco

And finally, in first place, is the tiny principality of Monaco. Here, $1m is only equal to 15 square metres of space. We imagine it'll cost rather more to buy a flat in Tour Odéon (pictured), the tallest building in Monaco, and for which the price is on application.
