Bottled Water

Might seem an odd question, but obviously will only be drinking bottled water, but is there any tips to ensure that water has not been refilled with tap water.

Wondering is there a reputable chain of minimarts (such as 7 eleven) where we can reliably buy water etc

Thanks

Kev

Sure, there are lots of big supermarket chains everywhere. If you're feeling a bit paranoid you can buy from them.

This issue is over-blown in my personal view. The risk that a bottle with its seal still on has been opened and refilled and then sealed again? It is negligible. The more important thing is to stick to the big brands. Hari has named them in the previous response.

Bring your own bottle and fill it at your hotel. Don't add more plastic to this polluted planet.

Thankyou , will stick to these brands and might err on side of caution and purchase from supermarkets

Also great advice Londinense , when we are out sight seeing all day, we will surely return to our hotel every time we need to hydrate ???

I have bought bottled water from big stores and from little kiosks. Never had a problem. I sympathise with Londinense, but what to do when you cannot trust the water from a tap?
