In our opinion, we think this well is one of the best places to have a drink. It's about 50 meters deeps and 25 meters of water should be down there! Overall, It's a great place to have a look at the deep well. During ancient times, it was there.

Baisha Ancient Well is on the way that I passed away each day of my secondary-school life. However, last year, I finally had a chance to visit it in May. My families like the water from Baisha Well. With my father, I brought two barrels to fetch water from the well. I recommend that you could try the water there, however, we will boil it before drink it. In this way, it will be much safer and healthier. It was late night when I arrived there. Therefore, I experienced a quite different Baisha Ancient Well and the park from common daily scene. There were several red traditional lanterns which contributed to a peaceful and mysterious atmosphere. With little light, I felt like walking in night hundreds of years ago. Baisha Ancient Well is in the Tianxin district where used to be old area of Changsha. So, in the neighborhood, there are also Tianxin Pavilion and city walls of ancient Changsha city. I recommend you not to miss these classic ancient scenes. Contrasted with modern Changsha, I prefer these ancient remains and history of Changsha. In my heart, these are the most attractive things of Changsha which also worth every Changsha people's pride.

Its a small well , not much to see unless you want to see the people who come to get water there. Suggest to drink some fresh water there. Also recommend to try some fresh tea in the tea house next to the well.

Baisha Well, is in Tuanxin District, located in the southeast corner of Changsha central area, to the West of Helong Stadium in Changsha. Although I had been living and working in Changsha since August 22nd 2014, I had never been to Tianxin District - the 'Old Changsha' area, with remains of the walled City. I wanted to visit this well-preserved ancient city remains of Changsha city, that includes landmarks scenic spots such as Tianxin ancient pavilion and ancient wall. Since I will be staying here for at least another year, I will make an effort to see Tianxin Pavilion (Tianxinge), ancient Wall and the Pavillion Park next time, about 1Km from this ancient 'Well' located on Baisha Street. I arrived before 5pm, the scheduled start of the Hash Run, so looked around Baisha Ancient Well and the Park above. Admission is FREE, and one can carry away the well water, so bring along some containers. The water is very clear, and tasted good. They say it makes tea taste better and wine a little sweeter, and good for making herbal medicines and soups. There were certainly a lot of people taking away the water. I did not like the use of an electric pump, connected to a hose, that some military personnel used to transfer water to some other ducts and generally wash the stone floored area. You must use the stainless steel ladles as informed by a Military supervisor, who spoke English (after I dunked my plastic bottle into the well water to fill it up). No funnels are provided, so it is difficult to fill a narrow necked bottle! http://www-en.hnu.edu.cn/Campus Life/Living in HNU/Extracurricular Activities/Travel/2010-12-17/313.html Taking a covered walk way, past engraved murals of the Baisha Ancient Well, that goes up past Chinese Bamboo, to the park above, is worth taking in my opinion. It is peaceful and quite, up above the area of the well. It is not a big park, but has a statue of some 'Water Goddess' or something.
