No longer take chances with your level of hydration. The data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) were analyzed by The Family Vacation Guide to determine which countries offer tourists potable water from the tap and which tourist destinations have been given the go-ahead to allow tourists to drink their tap water.

The focus is on visitors from outside the country. According to the Family Vacation Guide, it is essential to keep in mind that neither the safe nor the unsafe list indicates that the water in a country is polluted or hazardous for the people who live there.

It is simply suggested or recommended that visitors drink only bottled water because their bodies will not have had enough time to adapt to the water in the local environment.

There were 193 countries total that were considered for this analysis. Surprisingly, only 53 countries were found to have potable water available directly from the tap. The United States of America, the United Kingdom, Spain, France, Canada, Chile, and Singapore are just some of the places that can be found on this list.

Conclusion

To put that into perspective, there are 160 countries where it is not advisable for tourists to drink the water. The Bahamas, China, the Canary Islands, and the Maldives are just some of the countries that fall into the category of most unexpected travel destinations.
