Tipping in Thailand is not expected unless you are somewhere fancy and touristy. In most touristy areas locals might expect a tip, but it’s not common. The reason for this is because they believe in good karma. If they do something for someone else they will be rewarded much greater in the future but by tipping them you give them money as a reward so they won’t get a reward in another way. If you feel like you want to tip then most shops and restaurants have a tip box by the counter that you can use.
