There is no policy on tipping in Thailand. But this does not stop you from giving the service provider small gratuity for service that is considered to be exceptional. If this is extraordinary in nature, then it totally deserves a tip from your end.

When you are dining in mid-range restaurants or hotel restaurants, you are automatically charged with an additional 10% on your total bill. This surcharge is already considered to be the gratuity. At the end of the day, all the employees share this. This is then added to their wages.

If you want to give your waiter or waitress a tip of his or her own, then you can leave these on the table. You
can also hand it to him or her personally as you say your thanks. In this case, you are sure that the tip you lives goes directly to your service provider.

As for taxis, these public vehicles have meters that calculate the fare depending on the distance and the time it takes you to get there. In order for you to give tips to the cab driver, it is common that you round up the final fare to an even number. If let’s say the amount is THB52, then you must give the cab driver THB60. The supposed change is considered to be the gratuity.

There are so many sites to see in Thailand and so many things to do. There are so many foods to try. You can do all these and have the time of your life. While you are doing the following, people are there to give you the service and information you need. Tipping them is the least you can do to show your appreciation.
