Load balancer in SGP1


I’d like to set-up a High Availability infrastructure to my organisations’ website. Our droplet is currently at SGP1. I’ve read a documentation that droplet should be in the same region in order to use a load balancer, does that mean I can’t use load balancing in SGP1?

Can you suggest steps I should do?
