If top tier European schools have rejected you, try for second tier ones (Cranfield, University of Cambridge, U. of Manchester, etc.) Not sure about ones in Asia.

Also, try to look at it this way: Your GPA is only one part of your application. Your GMAT is good, and 3 years of work experience is acceptable. In your applications you should focus on these positives, and what might set you apart from other applicants (life story, volunteer experience, etc.)
