Here is a fun fact about the water in Taiwan:
Tap water is NOT safe to drink even after boiling vigorously because boiling doesn’t remove any chemicals or heavy metals. However, buying bottled water or a water filter is advisable.... One thing to think about is that every two or three years the government gets samples of all the bottled water on sale in supermarkets and tests them. As to date not a single sample of Taiwanese bottled water has passed the standards the government has in place. The only bottled waters that have passed the standards test are foreign bottled waters from countries where their governments enforce standards.
well... so far I haven't gotten sick, so lets hope it stays that way!!!
