'Ghamo din mana sou bou shessi' is a good way to thank someone and bid them a good day.

If you see a nice girl, a good compliment in greek is shilo poutana, it means 'beautiful face', all the girls will love you if you call them this. So all the girls you see, call them this, and you will be the most popular man in Cyprus!

Isn't it maybe just as important to learn the answering phrases? It's not much use asking where the john is if you can't understand the reply. That'll have you pissing in your pants!
Which I would say was a good argument for learning more than the basic phrases. This of course applies to people who are going to spend more than a couple weeks on holiday in Cyprus, otherwise one can stick to good old English. :P
