[quote=YEMMIE,238272]Hello again, Thank you both for the information. Actually, I did not offer a tip the first time, but the young lady who helped me became very angry because I did not, and she called me a bad man. Accordingly, although I had read that tipping is not customary in China, I thought that perhaps it was normal in large airports, owning to the large numbers of foreign travelers who pass through them. Therefore, on my second visit, I offered a tip (I don't remember how much) and the young man who was helping me criticised me, saying that it was not enough for the amount of work he had done. I didn't give him any more, but I decided I would find out more about this before I visited again. Let me say that these are the only two instances in which the people I encountered in China were anything less than friendly. In every other case, every single person I have dealt with in China has been enormously helpful, cheerful, kind, and pleasant without expecting anything in return. And in no other place or circumstance have I offered or felt pressured into offering any sort of gratuity. That is why I was so confused by these two events, and why I thought that perhaps it was different in airports. Again, thanks for the information. I guess I will have to regard these events as anomalies.[/quote]
