The term "tap water" is grossly misused in Thailand. Some people who buy and drink tap water in Thailand do so because they are advised by their hotel staff that it''s safe and also because it costs less than bottled water. But, of course, there are no such safety precautions taken in the supply of tap water here in Thailand. You are subject to all kinds of contamination, just because it is treated and packaged. What this means for you is that you need to be very careful when buying or carrying around bottled water.

Tap Water Quality: To start with, there is no such thing as absolute quality when it comes to tap water. This means that you can have clean water which may have contaminants like herbicides or pesticides. On the other hand, water which is considered to be of high quality has a number of minerals and other natural elements that make it ideal for drinking. Therefore, you should always check its quality before purchasing it from the vendor.
