Location and history
Dicover Phu Quoc Mysterious Fairy Well
The Fairy Well, Gieng Ngu, is located 2 km away from An Thoi Ward. It is not only a historical but also mysterious attraction that should not be missed for all visitors to Phu Quoc.
In the 17th century, on running away from Tay Son troops, Lord Nguyen and his army got thirsty due to a shortage of fresh water. At that time, in order to survive, he knew nothing to do but pointing his sword up in the sky and prayed “If the Highest still wants me to the King, please provide me food and water!”. Then, as soon as he dug the sword down in the ground, there surprisingly appeared a flow of fresh water coming up. The place is named as Gieng Ngu, The King’s Well or the Fairy Well.

Significances

Beautiful landscapes of a lake with mountainous and green backgrounds here on the island surely satisfy visitors. On the mountain, there lies a small temple and a pink stone armchair, also known as the King’s armchair. As you approach the Fairy Well, you will see a stele marked “The King’s Sword” to show the point where the water came out after the sword reached the ground.
The Fairy Well is often included in the tour visiting the Southern Island of Phu Quoc. You can either book a Phu Quoc package tour or get to the Fairy Well on your own by renting a motorbike.
