Our overall impression and experience was very good. The Dutch owners are welcoming and very friendly. The people that work here are simply - amazing. They are very helpful, speak English, and were always happy to answer the million questions I had. The food: We had pretty much everything on the Asian menu (there are also Western menu options) and... More

From the moment we arrived on Friday afternoon, we were made to feel right at home. We were greeted by Pauline, checked in, sat down, got a local beer and ordered some food. The Giggle Burger is, by far, the tastiest burger that I've ever tried - so flavoursome! The prices of the food and drink are very reasonable. I... More

Lovely and accommodating staff, great location, and gorgeous surroundings! No need to plan your adventures ahead of time as you can book everything at reception. Boating on the Li River, taking in the infamous light show, and riding bikes along The Giggling Tree's self-guided Dragon Bridge Bike Tour are musts. Enjoy!

We stayed two times at The Giggling Tree and enjoyed it very much. The owners and staff are super friendly and helpful - it feels like home. Rooms are clean and have enough pace. The bathrooms are clean and western standard. It is a little bit far away from the town but you will like the place because of the... More

We rent our bikes from there. They gave us couple of good advice, as well as a map and a picture guide for the best route to see the highlights. They also arranged bamboo raft ride for us. 2 bikes for one day + 2 hours bamboo raft cost us 350 RMB. They also have a restaurant with Western food.... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry to read you thought our lemon chicken was disgusting (which I think is a rather harsh word to use). I guess this is a matter of taste as it is one of the dishes many of our guests like a lot. Anyway, we will even try harder to serve food everybody likes.... More

The Giggling Tree is a perfect place to stay while experiencing Yangshuo! The location is great, just out of the main city, and beautiful country. The guesthouse itself was excellent with clean rooms, the beds were very comfortable with mosquito nets and each room had it's own climate control with great toilet facilities and hot showers. The guesthouse has a... More

The Giggling Tree lived up to all our expectations and some more. Stayed over the Easter weekend, myself and my daughter, and completely relaxed. Really appreciated the Easter activities they had put together especially the egg hunt! They bent over backwards to organize taxis, including pick up and drop off at Guilin, outings and everything we wanted to do locally,... More

This was, without question, my best stay in all of China. The location is great, just out of the main city, and beautiful country. The guesthouse itself was perfect. Rooms were clean and very large. Great toilet and hot shower. The guesthouse has a full food and drink menu. They have all sorts of food, at great prices. I think... More

The Giggling Tree is a perfect place to stay while experiencing Yangshuo! The staff is outstanding! They responded immediately to email communication before our trip. They spoke great English via email and in person.
