I remember reading somewhere in this forum that it is a good idea to take $100 USD in small denominations, and to tip $1 - $2 during the trip. Now, the stupid question: Who will be expecting a tip? I presume hotel staff? After, for example, a four night stay, what would be OK ettiquette?
Taxi drivers too?
Is the USD a good idea, why not tip in dong, (I'm guessing the USD would be easier for me to understand what I'm actually tipping and not get mixed up)?
Is it a good idea to take some presents over, eg. chocolates? Any other ideas?
Regards and thanks in advance, Jen.
