Taxis: Tipping isn’t expected, most taxis should be metered. Since small change isn’t always carried its best to round up though.
Hotels: Major hotels will include a service charge which can be up to 11% of the bill. Make sure to check the receipt for this charge. Don’t expect to tip if you see this charge on your bill.
Restaurants: Most restaurants will include a 10% service charge on the bill. If this isn’t on the bill then you can tip 5-10% if you enjoyed the service. It isn’t mandatory though.
Bars: Don’t tip. There may be a service charge on the bill, otherwise tipping isn’t required.
Other: Tipping isn’t common in Indonesia. Make sure you check your bills for service charge before tipping. If there isn’t a service charge then don’t feel the need to tip.
