The Magic Well, another name’s the King Well, is located 2 km away from An Thoi Town of Phu Quoc island. It is not only a historical but also the mysterious attraction.
In the 17th century, while Lord Nguyen Anh and his army ran away from Tay Son troops, he and his army didn’t know where they stayed, they lost their way on the small island (that island with name Phu Quoc now). They really got thirsty due to lacking of water. At that time, he stamped his foot and put his sword up in the sky and prayed “If the Highest still wants me to the King, please provide me food and water!”. As soon as he dug the sword down in the ground, a flow of fresh water ran out suddenly. This place was called the Magic Well or the King Well.
