Tipping Tibet

The tip system is not really integrated into the Tibetan society. In the small Tibetan restaurants one therefore simply does not leave a tip. Local and national guides expect tips. Taxi drivers and restaurant staff in Tibet do not rely on tips, but add it on to the price. The suggested amount for drivers and co-drivers who work for us is 100 yuan per day on behalf of the whole group. Incidentally the local tour leader expects a tip at the end of the trip, if she/he has done well. Our guideline is € 1 per passenger per day for guidance of the trip.
