If you´ve got the time, sending by ship could be your cheapest option, as it is quite a long way.
2,5 years ago I´ve sent a DL650 from Sydney to Helsinki by sea for less than 900 USD total, (and that includes the costs at the receiving end, which was over 200 USD - I believe your port handling costs would be less in Asia).
This shipment, however, took 3 weeks more than estimated, so all in all it took just over 2 months to arrive! The container had missed a change of vessel in Singapore and boom - I ended up waiting for 3 more weeks. For me, wasnt a problem, because we were returning home, but it would´ve been different if I was in the middle of a RTW-tour.
