Bow to say hello and goodbye say “ni hao”. To be super polite ask if they have already eaten. If they haven’t then invite them for a meal to make a great impression. Shake hands and bow is both accepted. Bowing in general is a sigh of respect. Many older Chinese lower their eyes during the greeting. This is to show they respect you.
