How to move Amazon EC2 instance to new region/availability zone

Say if you have setup your Amazon EC2 instance on US West (Oregon), and you want to move it to Asia Pacific (Singapore)? No problem, follow the following step-by-step guides:

Stop the instance, then right click on the instance and select create image

After the AMI image is created, right click on it and select Copy AMI

Select the Region you want to copy to, give a name and description, and click Copy AMI

After the AMI is copied to new region, click on the Launch button to launch it.

That's it :)
