So you just had this awesome chat with your friend/colleague or random person at the bar. Doesn’t matter who it is, but you need to be on your way. Time to say goodbye and greet the person. How do you say goodbye in Chinese? No worries, here’s some phrases in Chinese to leave on good terms.
再见 (Zàijiàn) – Goodbye – This one is the obvious greeting. Simple. To the point. Goodbye and you are on your way. But how about making it a bit interesting.
明天见 (Míngtiān jiàn) – See you tomorrow – Maybe you have noticed the 见 again. This means “to see”. So goodbye (above) actually means “see you again”, which is a good way to say goodbye. Now here you are saying “tomorrow” + “to see”. Therefore: see you tomorrow. You can replace this with any other time word really. “晚上见” () – See you this evening.
If you are not feeling up to the task of saying goodbye in Chinese, you can also try this transliteration of Bye-bye in Chinese: 拜拜 (Bàibài) – Goobye. I hear this often in TV shows.
