Tipping is not generally practiced in China and discouraged by the authorities. Even in many hotels and restaurants, staff are not allowed by the management to take tips. Exceptions are tour guides and drivers who are with you all day, bell boys who are very helpful at hotels, and restaurant waiters or waitresses whose service makes you feel flattered. In most cases, you could show your gratitude by leaving 10 or 20 Yuan.
