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 -...

Had an amazing time at The Giggling Tree. Room was very clean, food was great and it was situated in the most beautiful area you can imagine. Rode the bikes all around the countryside and the city. Thanks for a wonderful experience, I wish it was longer. Gail and Scarlett

As part of a 5 week trip through Russia, Mongolia and China, our 6 day stay at the Giggling Tree was one the highlights. The setting is stunning. You're right in the middle of the karst scenery that's the area's big attraction, with a whole range of walks and bike rides right from the front door (with the Giggling Tree... More

The room was quaint though a bit dark. There is not much natural light and they felt a bit damp. It is furnished with plain wood finishes and Ikea touches. The pool has a nice view and is a welcome touch. There are some really pretty outdoor areas to relax in. The food that we tried on two occasions was... More

Stayed at The Giggling Tree for three nights. - Great location with a nice view. They got a good setup in terms of transportation. It never takes more than 10 minutes for a private driver to come and pick you up and bring you wherever you would like! - Their team is very friendly, knows a lot about the area,... More

Our family (children ages 6,3,2) had a wonderful stay at the Giggling Tree. The scenery is breathtaking, the rooms are very quant and inviting, and the food is very good with both great western and chinese selections. We couldn't have asked for more! Definitely will be back!
