hmm,it's up to personel.
I thought in China,for some expensive resturant,they charge everythings,eg,they charge for the tissue paper,enviroments(nice decoration and background music),they charge for service..so,do you think you still need to leave the tip?

No. It has a tendancy to embarras the staff and throw them into a panic because they do dot understand what you are trying to achieve.

Even the taxi drivers in Beijing insist on you having the playschool money as change.

It'll all probably change after the Olympics though.

I think tipping is not nessesary at all. When the restaraunts charge for the food, they charge for the service as well.
So when we pay for the meal, we are paying for the service as well.
And as customers we have the right to enjoy good service. If they're running the restaraunts, they have the responsibility to serve a good ser-vice.

why tip the staff? we pay what we have to,what we consume.it is not our necessity and duty.
it is the matter of owner of the restaurant as whether they shall tip their staffs for their hard work.

Hi Rosy ,
I have never thought  about it..I always leave a tip  in restaurants.It is not a big deal.
It is a little troublesome at the hairdresser's which I visit once a week and I have to give a tip to three different persons who work there.It is such a nuisance but I can not avoid it.
I really    love China,半个 中国 人
