We are going to Turkey and were wondering about if the water is potable/drinkable at all locations. When we went to China years ago, we were told to only use bottled water everywhere (and to be sure that the water bottle was sealed, i.e. not previously opened and therefore,refilled). Even in some of the hotels, the tap water was not potable and was labelled as non-potable. Again, that was over twenty year ago.
Is the water situation the same for Turkey? Do we need to take iodine tablets?
Do we need to be cautious regarding what we eat? Again in China, we were told to avoid fruit like grapes and strawberries and told to eat only peel-able fruits like oranges or bananas.
We are so excited to be going to Turkey and want to experience their wonderful culture, however we would like to do so without experiencing gastrointestinal difficulties.
