This is a general question geared to those who have had international networking experience. I'd like to get some feed on your feed experience  connecting from US to Asia, in our case Singapore. Our focus will geared toward reducing latency across the network but was there anything else I should consider. One issue I'm researching is the power voltage difference 110v to 220v and reaching how and from where I should order networking equipment to meet these needs. Any suggestions are appreciate.

With respect to power and moving around, a good commercial laptop will run on 120 V and 240 V with no issue. I have done this with numerous ThinkPads from North America to the Middle East. No issue.

Wi-Fi is generally available now in most places including many buses, boats, hotels, and like venues. Wi-Fi generally works to international standards and works well.

I cannot speak to latency very well because that depends upon your connection.

Travel with a good laptop and proper software is quite easy today.

Frequencies will vary / can vary by access point.

Are we strictly talking about travel or remote offices.

In the past we have setup remote datacenters for the users in those regions to use, and in turn we have a more expensive leased line from the data center to the US.  We actually have done that for all major regions, North America, EMEA and Asia

WiFi frequencies DO differ, but this will only effect the AP, not your laptop; your laptop will identify them whatever they are.
latency IS an issue, I have clients with offices in Australia who experience up to 350Ms latency to the UK
That's OK if you aren't trying to run applications across the link, however.
Singapore is well served by telecomms as I remember, so you will have choices.
