Tipping in China?

Jump to last reply

Ok, I'm confused.... I read on various forums on travel to China that tipping isn't commonly practiced in China, although some visitors do tip. I get our documents from our cruise and tour companies, and they both say to be sure to tip (including a Chinese tour company!). So, because I'm clearly a visitor, will I be held to a different standard than locals (or even expats) and considered a jerk if I don't tip? Or do I tip according to the type of establishment -- tourist hotel or restaurant: tip, and street food or local restaurant: don't tip?
