Tipping: You are not obligated to tip your tour guides in Indonesia, but a small amount is always appreciated. Some restaurants will include a 5-10% service charge on their bill. But if they don't levy any service charge, you can tip between Rp10,000 to 10% of the total bill. Taxi drivers do not expect tips either, but we suggest your round up to the nearest Rupiah.
