Please natives in China by coming out with a few nice or practical Mandarin sentences. "Nǐ yào bú yào gēn wǒ tiàowǔ" ("Would you like todance with me?") is handy. "Zhèiwèi xiānsheng huì qīngdān" ("This gentleman/lady will pay for everything") is another handy one to keep up your sleeve.
When it is time to depart Dehong, spend the last of your renminbi on last-minute souvenirs and say Zàijiàn (farewell).
