Hi all,

Well, finally next month we will be off to China! We are doing a tour from Hong Kong to Beijing overland and are counting down the days Mr. Green

The issue of tipping has been raised and after having a look around the net, I thought this would be the best place to ask some questions, so if someone could answer them for me, it would be most appreciated Mr. Green

1. Do Chinese people on a Chinese Tour in China tip?

2. Is tipping also known as "Stupid Foreigner Tax"?  *LOL*

3. In Chinese culture, is the idea of tipping insulting? and if so why?

Thank you all for your time

Tipping is generally not a common practice in China. On any specially organized tour, you could check with the guide for any peculiar circumstances.
