We stayed a few nights here in March. Everything looks very good, the guesthouse is very well maintained, the rooms are clean and very spacious (also the beds are big and comfortable). The menu is extensive and varied. The staff is very helpful and friendly. You feel really at home with the Giggling Tree and it is the perfect spot... More

Fabulous and very relaxing place to stay near the river in the countryside near Yangshuo. The food is fabulous, Chinese and Western dishes available. Because of the Dutch owners also typical Dutch dishes (Dutch fries, apple pie etc.) are on the menu. The rooms are rustic and the courtyard is an excellent place for families to unwind and for kids... More

We had a week at the giggling tree and it was fantastic. The staff are very friendly and helpful, they arranged all our tours. The food is great but the actual layout is the best. A lovely courtyard, a great pool and a fantastic relax garden where you can sit and look out over the mountains. The giggling tree is... More

We (2 adults, 3 kids from 10 to 16) stayed in the giggling tree at end of March '14. The guest house is located around 5 kilometers west of Yangshuo in a small village. An old farm has been converted to a guest house with a very special atmosphere. We just loved to sit in the inner courtyard enjoying our... More

I visited the Giggling tree with my sister and mother at the end of march to celebrate my mothers birthday. It had been recommended to me by a friend and we were lucky to get one of the last triple rooms available in spring break. Paulien and family were so helpful even before we had arrived and booked a taxi... More

Giggling tree is not in the city but only 20 mins away from Yangshuo by bicycle. They have lots to do in the area and staff are friendly, rooms are comfortable and big. We were there in spring so it was still cold, rainy and misty but I can just imagine summer must be exquisite with all the outdoor venues... More

A very special, friendly, authentic place! Old farmhouses, renovated with love and panache, around a beautiful courtyard, where we could relax and watch our kids playing. We loved it! Great for families!
