Is tap water in Istanbul safe to drink or not? Mixed reviews online!

Hi everyone, I’m going to Istanbul for 3 months and wanted to know whether the tap water there is drinkable or not - I’m getting mixed reviews online! Anyone who has lived or traveled in Istanbul recently, please enlighten. Thanks!

Hi Sonia,

I live in Istanbul and I was told from day one it was not safe, so I decided to buy it. They have services to bring your 29Lt bottle at your doorstep. Check Getir application (there’s a Getir Water option)

Have fun in Istanbul!
