Money Transfers best exchange rates

Is there a general rule regarding money transfers internationally between banks? I get conflicting advice on exchange rates. Some say you are best served by transferring in your original currency and then getting the exchange into local currency at the receiving bank to get the best rates but others advise the reverse. My base banking is in Hong Kong and I would be using SWIFT for the transfers to Thailand, Malaysia any Singapore. Any banking experts out there?
