As you all know it is common to tip in the western world and the norm goes as high as 20% in the states. Luckily for me i get to study in south korea in the summer . In south korea everything i believe is quite cheap as i can go to a mid-low(average ish) class resteraunt and spend anywhere from $5 to 10$ for myself or maybe $15 if drinking is invloved. But even greater then that i believe is the fact that you do not need to tip . It is not expected and in some places it would actually be quite offensive . So i believe i will enjoy my $5 dining experience in south korea’s inexpensive resteraunts .
