ABSTRACT
The article presents guidelines to tipping etiquette in several business travel destinations. Travelers in Thailand are advised that a ten percent service charge is included on the bill. But, if this is not included, travelers can add on an amount of five percent, and if they are booked at an upscale, four- or five-star hotel, they are expected to give the bellboy 20 Thai baht. In Indonesia, a ten percent service charge is added at elite restaurants, and for extraordinary service, travelers are expected to give 6,000 Indian rupees.
