We very much enjoyed our relaxing time at the Giggling Tree. The room was spacious, if a bit on the dark side due to the recessed windows in the thick walls of the old farm building. Mosquito nets were over all the beds. The staff were friendly and helpful always. The food was delicious. We really appreciated and were impressed by the photo booklets they put together for people to follow on nature walks or on bike rides through the area. Brilliant idea, excellently executed.

Lovely place for relaxing and going out in the countryside. Staff were very pleasant and always willing to help with any requests.
Pauline and Karst are lovely hosts and caring people that run a top notch getaway in the stunningly beautiful Karst mountains of Yangshuo. I have been here twice and will definitely return in the future. The service is great, even when there are problems the staff are attentive and quick to fix them. They take the time to get to know their guests and their rooms are wonderful. This place is a real gem!
Quiet location just outside Yangshoa but only a short cycle in. Amazing views from the pool, lovely shady, leafy terraces and a big room. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
This place had an excellent staff all around but they frequently only had one person behind the reception desk. I felt bad for them because they always seemed overwhelmed and I spent a good chunk of time at giggling tree waiting to ask them a question about transportation or activities. Make sure you read their guide to the area they give you when you check in and it will save you time. You also need to pay about 60RMB round trip every time you want to leave this isolated tiny village
