Tipping in Thailand - By Toast To Thailand

When in Thailand … to tip or not to tip? This was the question that came to our minds during our first taxi ride in Bangkok. Back then, we didn’t carry smart phones and had no way of checking what was appropriate – so we let our driver keep the change. He first looked confused, then amused, then he said, “Khop Khun Khap” (thank you), and smiled. It worked. Or did it – had we tipped too much?

Knowing when to tip and how much can be quite bewildering. So like us, if you prefer to understand the tipping culture of a country before visiting – and you are travelling to Thailand – this post is for you.
