One of the most useful gestures you can pay to locals you'll encounter in your travels is to make the effort of some common phrases. "Nǐ yào bú yào gēn wǒ tiàowǔ" ("Would you like todance with me?") is useful. "This gentleman/lady will pay for everything" is also useful, so practice pronouncing "Zhèiwèi xiānsheng huì qīngdān"
As your break comes to an end, you'll be sure to bid the region a teary "Zàijiàn"
