Tipping Driver and Guide

We are staying in Siem Reap and have a car and driver. What is an appropriate tip for his services.

Do you tip the hotel staff for their services? If the answer is yes what is a fair tip on a daily basis.

I do not tip hotel staff but I do tip a bit at restaurants IF the service and food is good.

How long will you have your tuk-tuk? If it is just for one day, maybe a couple of dollars. If you have him for a few days, and he provides good service, maybe give him $5 or more, this is up to your discretion. Tipping is not customary and many do not tip, so you should never feel obligated to tip at any time. I always tip guides and usually drivers. For very short trips into or around town, I do not tip.

We also generally leave something for the room staff .. they are the ones who opften have the least opportunity to make additional income. $1/day is probably reasonable as these tps are usually shared between all those involved in housekeeping
