    Use mineral water only

    Mineral water bottles

    Favorite thing: Simly and Rawal dams are the main drinking water source in twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi. Water is often polluted thus not safe to drink. You should either boil this water before use or otherwise use bottled mineral water.

    Nestle is the best brand for mineral water. Check for expiry date and plastic seal on cover before buying. There are many other brands available in market but have got many complaints. Some even refill tap water in bottles and sell it as mineral water. So use only Nestle's mineral water. Small bottle cost Rs. 12 and large for Rs. 22 only.

    Favorite thing: Simly and Rawal dams are main drinking water source in Islamabad. Water is often polluted and thus not safe to drink. You should either boil this water before use or otherwise use bottled mineral water.

    Always ask for Nestle mineral water and also check for plastic seal on cover. If seal is damaged then refuse to buy that bottle. Nestle is most reliable mineral water brand in Pakistan. There are many other brands available in market. There are complaints that many of them refill tap water in bottles and sell it as mineral water. So use only Nestle's mineral water. Small bottle cosr Rs. 12 and large bottle for Rs. 22 only.

    Favorite thing: Don't think I'd call it a favourite thing....anyway.

    Our advice was to only buy 3 brands of bottled water, Nestle, Sparkletts or another one I can't remember (well, that makes 2 then!). Appararently, some other brands simply fill bottles with tap-water. Also make sure that the seal is still in place if you are ordering a bottle at a restaurant. Big 2L bottles of Nestle were about 90 rupees from memory and were pretty widely available.
