Visiting the Giggling Tree is like 'coming home' at a place you've never been before. One of the oases in a big country that gives you the feeling of rest and holiday. Owners and founders Paulien and Karst do everything to make you feel comfortable. The food is excellent and very affordable! Rooms are convenient and trendy. A great swimming... More

My friend and I stayed here in June this year. We absolutely loved it. Amazing location, with lots of cool things to do. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We took advantage of the self guided bike tour and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Perfect location for those who don't care of being away from main streets, crowd, noisy bars and stuff. Peaceful, quiet place with soul. Awesome food. I mean it, it was the best food in Yangshuo I've tried. Forget about ordering some western food and being afraid of getting something weird instead. Really friendly and fast service. The mountains are right... More

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

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
