Something I have been wondering for a long time...
I was recently in KL and stayed at a hotel with lounge access.
The lounge waiters were really attentive and provided one of the best services I've ever received.
Hence, I really wanted to tip them for their great service, in the range of MYR6- 10. However, I'm afraid it may be too little?? They might perceive it as an insult? In the end. cowardly me didn't tip at all - still fell bad about it. The tip could have reinforced good service and brightened up someone's day.
What's the tipping culture like?
I asked because last year I stayed in Hotel Istana Lounge level and tipped the waiter MYR10. However, he didn't seem appreciative and kindof expected it, perhaps it was too little?
In contrast, when I was in Bangkok, I tipped the housekeeper 20 THB and she was beaming with joy - literally.Edited: 31 December 2012, 19:08
