Thailand Warnings and Dangers: 218 reviews and 111 photos

WARNING: 'Bottled water' may not really be bottled water. While I was staying in Bangkok, I became very ill (nausea, extreme diareha) from drinking what I thought was bottled water. There are people in the street who will sell you bottled water for 5 baht. This is way to cheap for bottled water, even in Thailand. This is not an area to skimp in your travel budget. It was an unbelievably nasty and uncomfortable situation, especially considering I was staying in a low-budget, non-airconditioned room with filthy shared bathroom.
