Are you a good or a mean tipper?

Conde Nast Traveler has come up with Etiquette 101: Your Guide to Tipping in 50 Countries - for when you're wondering just how much to tip after dinner or when you're out having drinks in a foreign country.

Dubai's government mandates adding a 10pc service charge to all bills at hotels, restaurants, and bars.

In South Africa, it is customary to tip a waiter 10-15pc of the bill.

In Chile, a 10pc tip is included in the bill, but you should feel free to put down a few more bills amounting to another 5-10pc. Nicer restaurants may also charge a 5-7pc 'cubierto', which is basically a sit-down charge.
