barbara martorello Oct 14, 2014 at 10:05 PM

vermont traveler, i was told atthe apple store to put your i phone on airplane mode and be in a wifi area with the wifi on and there will be no charges as you are not using a cellular carrier. if you text ani=other i phone user, it is called i messaging and there is no charge.

Must view: Anthony Bordain on Shanghai. Watch on your On Demand feature. In the season 4 premiere of "Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown," Tony visits Shanghai, witnessing firsthand the effects of China's booming economy on the vast nation. He explores aspects of Chinese history and culture that still resonate today amid the modern city's flashing lights and newly-minted status as China's capitalist cornerstone. And in true Bourdain fashion, he seeks out the best street food.

I watched via Amazon Prime streaming Roku, but it's CNN archives otherwise. Easy to get either way. It is about WAY more than food. Looking forward to both and see you all a week from today in Beijing!

Hello there Road Scholars travelling companions,
I will be in Beijing about 24 hours before the group arrives on May 3, 2015- I am starting my journey one day earlier from Toronto, Canada, to be on the safe side….is there any one doing the same and arriving a bit early? this is exciting as it is my first experience in China and with RS -
