Peter’s Asia Travel Schedule

By on October 14, 2017

Every year I spend roughly half my time in Asia. Because I’ve been in San Francisco since April, you knew Asia was coming. Now here it is: My 2018 Asia travel plans.

My 2018 Asia Schedule

  • Bangkok, Thailand #1 (Nov 29, 2017 – March 11, 2018)
  • Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (March 12 – 14, 2018)
  • Cebu City, Philippines (March 14 – 24, 2018)
  • Manila, Philippines (March 24 – 29, 2018)
  • Bangkok, Thailand #2 (March 29 – May 15, 2018)
  • China (May 15 – 29, 2018)
  • U.S. return: San Francisco (May 29, 2018)
  • Asia return (tentative): Bangkok (Dec 1, 2018)

This year is different than past years, however

For one, I’m not traveling as much.

Two years ago I basically lived on the road full-time. Last year, I visited 24 cities in eight different countries. This year it was 13 cities in five countries. In 2018, I’ll look even less like a world traveler.

I’m still living in Asia as much time as ever, but living out of a suitcase is tiring. I’m also spending more time on my businesses, and I need more stability for that (you don’t even know how hard it was to shoot this video from a monastery in Bangalore, for instance, or make this video while in motion in Southeast Asia).

Second, I’m not visiting India!

Oh my gosh; I’ve spent at least a month in India basically every year for the past 15 years. Along with Thailand (my home), it is a regular feature of my schedule.

But that’s why I’m not visiting India this year: Aside from the regular spiritual pilgrimage, India is played out for me. At least right now. I’m almost certain I’ll be back in 2019, but given the need for “less travel” right now, India is getting a year off.

In its place, I’m sneaking in one of the last places in Asia I don’t know well: mainland China. It was between Iran and China for vacation, and my Mom won. Which is to say, China won. So I’ll be exploring mainland China before heading back to San Francisco in late May, which makes a certain sense since I already have so many Chinese clients.

For my latest travel information and the specific cities I will visit in China, see my Location page. My Location page is updated year-round and always has the most current information on my location and plans. If you’ve ever asked yourself, “Where is Peter now?” you now have a secret tool for finding the answer to that question.

While my schedule and eating habits shift during my stay in Asia, my normal work routines continue. I help couples and singles have better relationships through my relationship coaching business (both seeing people in person and over Skype), and I oversee my writing and content marketing business, EdChief.

My current timezone at any given moment can be found on my Contact page, and photos from my travels can be found on my Twitter feed.

I also send an email update roughly once per month to friends, family and people who like to follow my adventures. Get my updates!
