Tap water is clean, but drinking it directly is not advisable. Bottled water is recommended.
Tipping is not customary in Thailand, although it is becoming so. Larger hotels and restaurants add a 10% service charge to the bill. Taxi drivers do not expect a tip, but the gesture is always welcome. A tip of 20-50 baht is acceptable for porters.
Fixed prices are the norm in department stores, but at most other places bargaining is to be expected. Usually tourists can obtain a final price of between 10 - 40% lower than the asking price. Much depends on the shopper’s skill and the shopkeeper’s mood; remember that Thais appreciate a sense of humor. With patience and a smile, the shoppers will not only get a better price, but they will also enjoy making a purchase. It is best to look around different places before making a final decision.
