Although a 10% service charge is added to food and accommodation bills, we recommend the following tipping: 

  • Restaurants and bars 10% in cash to servers beyond the 'service charge'

  • Drivers 10%

  • Room cleaners Up to Rs 100 per day

  • Bag carriers/porters Rs 50 per bag

  • Shoe minders at temples Rs 30

  • Guides Varies greatly; agree to a fee before you set out
