Wells are engineering structures developed by humans to use groundwater. Many famous tourism areas have wells as sightseeing features. An example is the ‘Bitter and Sweet Wells next to Baiyun Hall’, one of the 18 scenes of the North Peak of Hengshan. These two wells are near each other, but the water from one is sweet, while the water from the other is bitter. In addition, the ‘Imperial Concubine Zhen Well’ in Beijing’s Imperial Palace is associated with a tragic historical event. Other tourism sites are the ‘Jiu Jing (Nine Wells)’ at the scenic site ‘Jiu Tan-Jiu Chi-Jiu Jing-Er Si Wu Wan (Nine Ponds Nine Pools Nine Wells and Twenty-five Bends)’ in the South Peak Hengshan tourism zone.
