Giggling tree was the best accommodation during our trip in China. The atmosphere is great. The rooms are very cosy and clean. The owners are really helpful. You can rent bikes for a few yuans and grab a photo guidebook whichs leads you around. The Chinese staff speaks pretty good English and tries to help you with everything you want... More

We stayed here for a week and it was the best thing we did! The staff are friendly and welcoming and the hotel is beautiful and has a wonderful 'feel' to it with a courtyard where numerous tables are for eating. But to top it all off; an amazing view of the limestone peaks which poked up behind rice paddy... More

I stayed here for 3 days with my family in a trip across China. It came recommended from a friend of my brothers and I would most definitely pass on this recommendation. They place was lovely and the rooms have been beautifully resorted. They were well equipped with whatever you needed. Everyone in the place was so friendly and the... More

We had a great stay in the giggling tree. Beautiful rooms, good food and friendly staff. Nice atmosphere with a lot of families and children, though also suitable for couples or backpackers! Highly recommended.

The Giggling Tree is a great place to relax and explore the Yangshuo area. The view to the rice fields and mountains is amazing and the beautiful Yulong river is in walking distance. You can rent good bikes directly at the giggling tree and start exploring. The food and drinks are great and the stuff is super nice and helpful.... More

As soon as we walked through the gate it was as if a blanket of calm descended and the white knuckle taxi ride from the airport just melted away. On seeing our room things just kept getting better, this is not a hotel this is a charming, cottage like retreat. The room was so homely you could just curl up... More

The Giggling tree is based in a beautiful landscape I have never seen earlier. The atmosphere is fantastic, the staff is pleasant, service minded always with a smile and language(English) is not a problem. The area provides plenty of day excursions or you can just sit back and enjoy a cold beer and a book. The rooms were clean, not... More

Giggling tree is a superb place to stay when you want to get a feel of the Guilin area and its nature. The location is great as you are basically located in the actual nature which you have to take a buss to, if you locate yourself out of Guilin itself. Take a bike from the Giggling tree and decide...

We stayed for five nights. We arrived to Guilin in the middle of night because of delayed domestic flights but fortunately the Giggling Tree staff had arranged everything for us and all we had to do was to jump in a car. There was no public transportation to Yangshuo at this time of day so we were very lucky to... More

Giggling Tree was a terrific little find for our 4 night stay in Yangshuo. The staff is delightful - eager to serve, eager to connect. They were great about arranging anything we wanted to do, providing super helpful maps and anything else we might need to enjoy a rural Chinese vacation. Rooms are very simple, not at all fancy -...
