Singapore: Know who to tip—and who not to
Tipping’s prohibited at the airport and discouraged in hotels (except for bellboys, who generally receive S$1 per bag) or restaurants that levy a 10% service charge. Unlike in other countries, though, waitstaff don’t receive a percentage of this service charge, except in the more progressive establishments. Taxi drivers don’t receive tips from Singaporeans, who become upset when they see tourists tip.
