Countries where a 'thank you' is the only tip expected

If you're a penny-pinching tourist, Magellan's, which sells a wide range of products for travelers, has compiled a list that shows the going tipping rates for porters, valets, taxi drivers, and restaurant waitstaff in countries around the world. Americans may be pleased to learn that, overseas, less is expected. Take Morocco, for example, where the rule of thumb after a meal is to leave loose change for the restaurant staff. Then there are countries such as New Zealand and even Japan, whose service workers do not expect tips. The countries (in alphabetical order) that Magellan's identifies as no-tipping destinations:

Brunei

Japan

Malaysia

New Zealand

Samoa

Singapore

South Korea

Thailand

Vietnam
