Giving tips was not customary for a long time in China, but it is gaining ground increasingly. Local guides at excursions to the Chinese Wall or the Terracotta Army at Xi’an also expect a contribution. Taxi drivers and restaurant staff do not really expect a bonus, but they do appreciate it. The amount we suggest for chauffeurs and co-drivers working for us is 100 Yuan a day on behalf of the whole group.
Apart from that the local travel guide will expect a tip at the end of the journey if he or she has done a good job. We suggest € 1 per traveller per day.
