The agencies use freelancers much less often than in the US,and when they do hire FL they tend to use people over there, that they might know. The rates are lower than US rates too. If you went over to asia travelling you could try to meet CDs and might get a little here and there.

Depends on the country. Unless you're working on regional accounts, your worth might be minimal due to language. May have a better chance with emerging countries like Cambodia or Myanmar. But challenges are a little greater in things like execution, and budgets are less.
