A friend and I stayed at this lovely guest house for 4 nights at the end of May, but wished it could be much longer, I could just see myself staying there for weeks, biking or walking around in the real countryside away from all the downtown noises, sitting in the beautiful courtyard drinking coffee or tea and reading books,...

My wife and I stayed at the Giggling Tree and everything was perfect. We had some issues with our flight into Guilin and Paula communicated back and forth with me incredibly promptly and helped us sort everything out. She went above and beyond. She and her husband have really crafted an amazing guesthouse, and have thought of everything. We loved... More

Rustique style, nice english speaking staff, relaxed atmosphere, efficient help to choose and book activities. Clean rooms, good chinese and international food choices, which even worked well for the vegetarian in our group. Don't miss the sezchuan fried lotus roots, a real highlight!

The Giggling Tree is surrounded by beautiful scenery and is situated at about 10 minutes biking from Yangshuo. The guesthouse offers a nice alternative to the crowded and touristy town of Yangshuo. The guesthouse offers high value for money with nice, clean and airconditioned rooms with wide selection on the menu, a swimming pool and a wide selection of activities... More

After many days in different cities it has been a delight to find this quiet and beautiful place. We had planned to stay two days and finally stayed five. The owners have a very nice family and the staff is very interesting and nice. The swimming pool is a real plus. Don't miss to stay there! Special thanks to Jackie.

The Giggling Tree is a beautifully restored collection of yellow-brick farm buildings. Our room was comfortable and cool. It's easy to find lots to do - we enjoyed cycling. The owners provide bikes for hire (very cheaply) and excellent photographic guides to help you get around. It was magical to see the local scenery and farms close up - paddy... More

We spent a wonderful weekend at The Giggling Tree - the hostel is in a beautiful and tranquil area outside of Yangshou. The staff could not have been more helpful to our family - not only in organising the light show and boat ride down the Yi River but also in rescuing us when my son's bike broke down. The... More

We stopped here for a quick bite after a steamy bike ride. The staff was friendly, indoor and outdoor seating, great little chicken dish. Would definitely go back to eat and would consider staying there next time we visit Yangshuo.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the tiny village Aishanmen, close to the scenic Yulong river only 5 km west from tourist hotspot Yangshuo, we renovated traditional yellow brick farmer houses into a beautiful inn. The courtyard is breathtaking. Our atmospheric restaurant and terrace with scenic views give travelers the chance to breathe fresh air again. In April 2013 we have opened our outdoor swimmingpool. Why stay in the city, when the countryside is so amazing! ... more   less
