How to Thank Taxi Drivers in Hong Kong


Hong Kongers often complain about local taxis and see no special reason to thank the drivers.

On occasion, though, one gets excellent service from a taxi driver and wants to thank them. For most of us, a verbal thank you will suffice. Some may tip, although as explained in our guide to tipping in Hong Kong, that is not the local custom.

The government actually runs a scheme whereby you can commend a taxi driver whose service has pleased you. For more information or to nominate a driver, you can visit the Quality Taxi Services Steering Committee website at If you want a complaint form about a Hong Kong taxi, you can also download one at the same website.
