I know people need to pay tips nearly everything here. When i eat foods at restaurants i pay the tips.I take taxi i pay the driver tips. I do the same things at many places.When i traveled to another country no tips when i finished foods in a restaurant or did my haircut .No tips make me surprised.how do you think about that ?

in some countries, they are surprised when you give them tips because it's not expected or required. they would even get embarrassed when you insist they accept it.

@Linda1234 yes, it's good to research the country we're visiting first so we know the do's and don'ts. the internet is a big help because it's now easy to find such information by ourselves.

I give tips whenever I can. I used to do it automatically but when people whine for more I opt on giving any tips at all.

@Linda1234 Before I always tip the taxi driver. But when they already asked me for additional before I even settle myself inside the taxi I don't give any additional anymore. Its kind of sad really.

Tips become a part of life, it seems. But not everywhere. In train, if the food and other services are free (they add the amount with ticket charges) the staff asks tips before ending the journey. We have to pay it even though we don't wish
