After visiting some very busy cities in China, our stop at the Giggling Tree was a delight. The courtyard and garden offers enough space to sit an enjoy a book. I loved that you can really find your own spot, since so often these common spaces do not feel yours to really use. The guesthouse is not close to the... More

I tip my hat to Paulien and Karst for what they've created here: a great little hideaway in beautiful Yangshuo County. The rooms, build around a small courtyard, are simple, but clean and functional, with airco, a fan, mosquito nets, and a nice little bathroom. There's a pool, a great terrace for lounging and star gazing, and a restaurant that... More

Awesome getaway from Shanghai. People recommend heading to Yangshuo for a week, which is definitely ideal but this little retreat even makes good for a two-day weekend. Lounge poolside, head for some BMXing, and enjoy the home-touch service. Great experience.

We went down for Mid-Autumn festival and couldn't have been luckier to stay here. We were recommended by a friend and thought we would just stay one or two nights but ended up here the whole time, we didn't want to leave. The location is great being a bit out of town, super quiet at night time. Views are fantastic... More

It was an amazing vacation over there! The owners are very nice to everyone and the staff is that too. There's a lot to do, like swimming in the river, rockclimbing, cycling, a traditional Chinees massage and more. I'd like to come back!

At the beginning we planned to stay there two nights and finally stayed 5 nights. Only few minutes away by car from the city center. Many accomodities to discover the region with bike or hike,...

Absolutely fabulous landscape, endless opportunities to make amazing sightseeing trips, a guesthouse that really stole our heart, with absolutely charming staff, very competent Dutch management and excellent food and...

Giggling tree is located about 5 km away from downtown - operated by a Dutch couple. It's probably the best hotel you can find to stay in there with a affordable price. My friend and I fell in love with the location and the people there that we ended up extending our stay there. The staff goes out of their... More

This is the absolute best place to stay if you are going to Yangshuo. It has the most amazing location, right on the river with incredible views of the unique Guilin landscape. We couldn't stop taking photos of the view from our room. It is a fantastic experience to ride around the area on the bikes provided by the hotel.... More
