your bomb.

R: You know its proven that making airplane noises doesn't help you learn languages. You
have to say stuff like "Let's GO!"
Y: Ok. Sounds good.
R: Well since we're "Going" lets figure out to say "Bon Voyage" in Chinese!

In this case, you’d better say: yi2 lu4 ping2 an1 一路平安

Yi2 lu4: all the way

Ping2 an1: safe and sound

Safe and sound all the way/ bon voyage 一路平安


R: Well that concludes our "GREAT" Chinese studio.

Y: Please take care of all your belongings and put your tray tables in an upright position.
R: how do you say "bon Voyage" in Chinese.
