Thailand's Drinking Water Meets Who Standards

Recommended Posts

I don't even drink tap water in the UK! Tap water is for washing and some cooking. Drinking and making tea/coffee is bottled water.

I use a carbon filter in the UK, I don't know if this would be okay for Thailand. Any thoughts?

A test in Sydney showed that bottled water doesn't have enough fluoride in it when compared with tab water and water from carbon filter containner. The companies just simply don't add fluoride in the water.

I drank unboiled, unfiltered tap water for quite a while in BKK with no ill health effects--I didn't realize you should boil it. Other than tasting not very good, it was fine. I still only boil water for drinking. A lot of bottled water isn't particularly pure--several years back one common brand in Pattaya was found to contain fecal material.
