10 Countries Where Joe's Crab Shack's Tipping Ban Would Be Completely Normal

Waiters being paid hourly like other jobs is a revelation here in the states, but just another day in Korea?

  1. 1

    Japan

    Good service is expected in Japan and tipping can sometimes be seen as rude.

  2. 2

    Korea

    Tipping isn't expected at all in Korea. Sometimes 10% might be tacked on to a hotel bill, but tipping in the American way isn't at all expected.

  3. 3

    England

    England tends to include gratuity in the bill. You may want to hand a good server a bit of cash if they did a great job, but other than that it is not really expected.

  4. 4

    Switzerland

    The Swiss actually include the gratuity in the bill by law. You aren't going to be tipping your waiter for Swiss cheese anytime soon.

  5. 5

    Australia

    Tipping has not historically been normal down under. Recently, that trend has changed a bit but not enough to take it off this list.

  6. 6

    Denmark

    Denmark actually pays their weight staff really well. They even get incredible benefits. No need to tip!

  7. 7

    Brazil

    Brazil actually does not require tipping. Some places might suggest it, but it is not required or expected.

  8. 8

    Belgium

    Belgium is much like Switzerland in its views on tipping. It is not required and actually is regulated by law.

  9. 9

    New Zealand

    Tipping isn't expected in the land of Lorde. However, service staff are not paid as well as in other tip-free countries. Maybe slip them a bill or two.

  10. 10

    China

    Nope! Not expected, but in some areas that deal with tourism it is appreciated.
