Tipping in Thailand

Restaurants often put a 10% service charge on meal bills, in which case a tip is not necessary.

Some say that if there is no service charge, 10% of the bill is an appropriate tip, but this can be expensive if your bill is quite high already. Many Thai people just leave the loose change.

Twenty baht is usual for hotel porters, while you may feel that the maid who has cleaned your hotel room all week deserves substantially more. Pizza delivery boys should get at least a dollar (approximately 40 baht). You can pay the exact amount of a taxi fare, but it is now common to round it up to the nearest 5 baht. You should always tip a private excursion driver; around 100 baht for a day’s driving is fine.
