Each Friday, we’re featuring a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from Corey C. from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, who says:

“When traveling in poorer countries where the tap water is not safe to drink, make sure any bottle water you buy is sealed. It is not uncommon for street vendors to just fill used bottles from the tap and put the cap back on.”

Great advice, as bad (or unfamiliar) water is never something to mess around with. Thanks Corey!

    The wife drank bottled water in Italy where the waiter already opened the bottle. She spent the next 3 days in a Swiss restroom at our hotel.
