I try not to drink it because of the taste (Temple Town) but I have and it hasn't killed me. And I do not believe for a second that the water coming in the 20-liter bottles is any cleaner/less like to impact my health.
The tap water in SR has made my hair go all lank and yucky.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

I would be surprised if the bottled water most people buy is actually anything but tap water.
Of course you dont get some ancient pure spring water when you buy a 500riel water-bottle. However they do run it through some filters first.
If Coca-Cola did this in the UK, what do you think they do here?

Nothing worse probably.

Then its up to the consumer if they are stupid enough or not to buy huge amounts of bottled water when they can get it from the tap.

I was walking down street 110 when I spotted a guy loading a 20 lt of this "" distilled water "" onto his moto for delivery. I asked where he got it and he pointed to a well known doctors room. I went in and asked the lady Dr who speaks English and she said they get it from their air conditioner.
I had a good talk to her and she knows it's not distilled water,,,, but yea, who will know and who will care is the attitude in the health profession.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
