Is it okay to drink Bangkok tap water without boiling it?

If you're in a condo or apartment, the problem is that the water has to go through a storage tank, which couild well be unsafe.  Most buildings have filter machines, so you can use those, although a better option is to put in our own filtration system.

I used to brush teeth, cook, and make coffee but for drinking I always used filtered water from machines because it tastes better.

The water authority does clean the raw water so it is potable. Thinking about the old Roman pipes in London and the dead rats floating in them. Londoners swear it is fine to drink.

From my first ever trip to Thailand I’ve been having ice in my drinks, cleaning my teeth, drinking small amounts and generally doing what I’d do in my j9me country. Never had any problems at all.

I use it for all those things as well as cooking. But try drinking a glassful. It's horrible.

OP - Enjoy, though wouldn't be my choice, simply for taste.
