Travel Tips-2nd Serie


The custom of tipping is not practised in Malaysia. To tip or not depends entirely on you.

Most hotels and large restaurants have already included a 10% service charge in addition to the 5% government tax to the bill (indicated by the ++ sign on menus and rate cards) so tipping is unnecessary.

Taxis in major cities are usually fitted with meters. The rates are currently at RM2 for the first two kilometres and 10 sen for every subsequent 200 metres. However, there’s a surcharge of 50% levied between midnight and 6am.
