Our clients always ask us what they should tip drivers, guides, etc. while on their trip. This is very
difficult to respond to because tipping relates directly to your overall experience with each person.
However, here are some travel industry standards that will give you a baseline idea about
Tipping - Travel Industry Standards:
Guide - $10 per person per day
Driver - $5 per person per day
Cruises in Halong Bay - $20 per night
For trekking trips:
Cook: $4 per person per day
