    Question Which bottled H2O in HCM City to buy?

    Cheers. We'll be in Ho Chi Minh City next week and while it is near the "Dry Season", we're interested in knowing which brand(s) of bottled water to survive on. Ideally, I like pure spring water but realize it may be "purified" municipal water instead. Hey, must be a reason that our Hotel is near Pasteur ("pasteurization") Street!

    Really? Is this your first time overseas? I would suggest relax about the water situation and just drink whatever bottled water you find.

    ^Really. She can't live without decaf, and he needs pure spring water? They should stay in the USA.

    I wouldnt want to worry you, but after the recent and mostly unreported outbreak of a particularly virulent strain of choleric amoebic dysentry that hit HCM city, travellers, especially americans, should take great care when purchasing bottled water. The purification and filtration processes are not up to western standards and there are many producers profiteering from this outbreak. For secondary protection always make sure you have the latest edition of the lonely planet guide upon your person.

    take care out there y'all.
