like in any country, Vietnam has it's shared of bottle water and like in many countries, people don;t trust the tap water coming from the faucets and hence it is best to buy bottle mineral or spring water when in saigon and the prices of a bottled water here is one of the lowest in South East Asia so don't scrimp on buying bottled water on the convenience stores or supermarkets or at the markets or hotels.

5000 VND for 500 ml and 10,000 VND for 1,000 ml and 16,000 VND for 2 liter of Joy bottled water

Favorite Dish: most 3 star hotels and up give complimentary 2 bottles of water everyday to guests and it that is not enough, then buy at the nearest convenience store or local store.

Address: Available everywhere
Price Comparison: least expensive
Directions: Available everywhere but buy it in supermarkets, cheaper by 100% than in stores and small food stalls.
Price: less than US$10
Rating: 5
Theme: Local

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
