This map and infographic explores which countries have safe tap water. Intended for travelers, this guide compiled by NeoMam Studios also reveals a deeper issue of access to clean water for locals. For example, the entire continents of Africa and South America do not have drinkable tap water. In fact, many developing communities do not have access to clean drinking water at all.

'A Traveler's Guide to Tap Water' is based on information from the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The infographic also offers tips on how to make water safe, like boiling it for one to three minutes to kill all potential pathogens. In an emergency situation without access to safe tap water, one can also leave a water bottle in the sun if its contents are clear or disinfect it with bleach.
