Escaping urban China in search of a peaceful break in the countryside - we couldn't have found anywhere better. This beautifully converted traditional housing complex is a haven. There is nowhere better to base yourself to explore Yangshao and the spectacular limestone scenery of this World Heritage area. Great food, reasonable prices, really helpful and friendly staff and a very child-friendly atmosphere.

This place is a must for anyone in the Yangshuo area. I would come back here just to stay at this guesthouse as it is one of my top experiences in China. Set in a serene rural area outside of the city, we spent hours bicycling around and just enjoying the peace and quiet. The main courtyard was a nice, social gathering area any time of day. After dinner many people seemed to stay and chat over a few drinks and the courtyard looks even more beautiful at night with the lanterns. The delicious food also made it a perfect stay. We took a taxi to get here from the centre of town and had printed off the Chinese map from the website to avoid any confusion with the taxi driver.

I was in need of a respite form the fabulous intensity of the Chinese cities, so I took a punt on the Giggling tree. Turned out to be an excellent move. Lovely conversion of an old farm house, ideally placed just an easy bike ride from Yangshou , but far enough in to the country side to feel a sense rural China.
The rooms are simple but comfortable and clean, and the staff and management do a great job to make your stay relaxed with out too much fuss.
One thing I really liked was the clever home made photo guide books to the trails, paths and road of the district. These really get you out and about and very quickly. It would be very difficult to navigate with out them.
After a big day on the bike exploring the trails and back roads of this glorious region it was lovely to sit on the terrace, enjoy a beer and some food form the kitchen as the calm cool quite descends on this delightful, well run, relaxing little place. And it’s pretty good value!

Loved our stay here. Ideal place to relax after some intense weeks of traveling China, in the middle of the karst mountains and just at the right distance from Yangshuo.. Beautiful old courtyard farm with huge, pretty rooms; great food; soft beds with mosquito nets; and excellent staff with good English (and Dutch!). If you enjoy a bike ride, be sure to ask for their pictured bike maps.

Really enjoyed my stay at The Giggling Tree. Not only the bed and room are comfortable, the owners and the manager Nikki are just wonderful and kind. Having breakfast in the terrace is my favorite thing to do. I love the fact that it is not located in the city center of Yangshuo cause it could be polluted, crowded and noisy in the city center. Yet, The Giggling Tree is close enough for me to go for a nice bamboo boat ride. I was there for the beautiful landscape and wanted to relax so I did the right thing to stay at the Giggling Tree. Thank you and I will come back again with Bagel and Puffy : )
