Drinking water Tips (4)

No Need For Bottled Water

Favorite thing Through all my travels, I regularly wondered if I can drink the tap water in that country. Sometimes, we are even advised to brush our teeth with bottled water. Most of the time, I do not heed the latter advice.

In Singapore, there is no need to worry about unclean tap water. It can be drunk straight off the tap.

Tap water is ok but understand the risks also.

Favorite thing I can't say I know the exact build up of whats in the water supply but as someone above has jst said singapore needs to import most of its water where is the demestic water supply coming from...unlike paris for instance which has underground springs and some of the best i've ever tasted without the fluoride it is not the case with singapore...sure you can drink it without becoming terribly sick in straightaway but is it the best water to drink from the tap. For me I'd say absolutely not. I have a terrible aftertaste and coating in my mouth from drinking the water here (i live in singapore) and a furry feeling in my throat. Also as most of the european member states have banned fluoridation of the water supply some calling it toxic I plainly don't see the need for this unnecessary medication of the water supply. If you want to brush that that stuff on your teeth no worries but don't force me to drink it.

Water from any Tap in Singapore is Safe to Drink

Favorite thing Water from any Tap in Singapore is Safe to Drink. Government takes the responsiblility and ownership of providing safe drinking water to it's citizens. So much so, that it takes guarantee of every drop. They are so confident that they are planning to ban bottled water in Singapore inorder to avoid pollution beacuse of the plastic.

Hats Off to the dedication and quality control measures taken forth by Singapore Government.

Bottled Water

Favorite thing as in any major cities, people don't generally trust tap water and hence the water refilling stations and water bottling companies are making a killing selling various kinds of bottled water like distilled water, spring water, mountain spring water, alkaline water, purified water and more and here in Singapore is no Different so yopu can buy bottled water everywhere like in convenience stores or restaurants or hotels and malls.

Fondest memory a peculiarity, most of the fresh water in singapore is Imported from Malaysia since Singapore is a small island state with hardly any water supply. they come in different sizes and the average prize of a 500 ml bottle water will be Singapore $ 1 and for larger sizes like 1 liter bottles will costs $ 2. with the tropical and humid climate, you will buy lots of them here and again are available everywhere.
