Bargaining and Tipping
 

Haggling is a part of Khmer culture and it happens everywhere – with vendors, tuk-tuk and moto drivers, in local markets, hotels and shops – but it is unlikely to be normal in high-end establishments. If bargaining is done in the right manner (with a friendly and calm disposition) the deal is done. The prices are often inflated to begin with and the vendor expects you to bargain.

 

Although tipping is not expected in the same way as it is in the Western countries, it is significantly appreciated. A small tip can go a long way in supplementing the salary of those in a developing country. Moreover, services can be rewarded when it is good. The visitors should not feel compelled to leave a tip if this matters.
