"Do NOT tip.Never eat all the..." China Local Custom Tip by cabbageking

China Local Customs: 240 reviews and 248 photos

Do NOT tip.
Never eat all the food when being hosted by a Chinese person...it means that they didn't order enough food and are a bad host.
Always be modest for yourself and compliment others lavishly...it's a 'face' thing.
