Try to not drink unboiled tap water in Malaysia

  • As Malaysian, we usually drink boiled or filtered tap water. No one drinks directly from the tap
  • In major hotels in KL, the tap water are usually filtered, so if you accidentally drink it it's not a big deal. Don't rely on it though there's no guarantee hotels have working filtering system in place
  • Otherwise I strongly recommend drinking bottled water, which is very cheap you can get them for 2-3RM (50-75 cents US)
  • You can use tap water for brushing teeth, that's no problem
