Why stay in the city.... when the countryside is SO AMAZING!
Just 5 km outside of touristhotspot Yangshuo you will find the 'Giggling Tree', a very unique guesthouse. We cater to expats, families, couples and mostly foreign travellers. We are not however a (cheap) party hostel.

In the tiny village of Ai Shan Men (Little Mountain Gate) we renovated traditional farmhouses surrounding a beautiful courtyard.
After years of working as tourleaders in China, we (a Dutch couple with a son) found this beautiful authentic place and transferred it into the Giggling Tree. In April 2007 we opened our doors.

All our rooms (including one 3-bed dorm) have a private bathroom with western style toilet. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated with woodcarvings, bamboo furniture and old Chinese advertisement-posters. Something completely different than other guesthouses.

Many travellers/expats in China are delighted to come and stay in the real countryside. After travelling through many big cities people are hungry for fresh air and amazing views. From our terrace/relaxgarden you can view the Yulong river valley, fabulous karstmountains, ricefields, countryside living and a superb sunset. In April 2013 we hope to open our outdoor swimmingpool. Weatherpermitting the pool will be open between April through to October.

Our Chinese cooks can make great western food and delicious local dishes.
In the evening our courtyard is a perfect place to enjoy great dinners and to meet other travellers.
In our DVD-room you can watch movies, read and exchange books, play games and use the internet for free. All common areas have wifi, as do most rooms.

The best way to explore the area is to go slow; so either go hiking, cycling or take a bambooraft. Your adventure begins the minute you step out of the 'Giggling Tree'.
In addition we can help you organize bambooraft trips, Chinese cooking courses, kung fu lessons, taj chi, calligraphy, private transport to anywhere, kayakking on the Li river, boattrips from Xing Ping and Yangshuo, daytrips to the Long Ji riceterraces and entrance tickets for several caves and the stunning lightshow on the Li River with 600 people performing a play directed by Zhang Yimou (director of the Beijing Olympic opening ceremony).

Give yourself a break, get some well deserved rest in the Chinese countryside. Whilst travelling through China you probably already saw or will see many big big cities. This rural setting is a great opportunity for a change of scenery!

Directions


Most people arrive in Guilin before coming to Yangshuo, because it has an airport and trainstation. From Guilin it is 65 km to Yangshuo. We can organize a private taxi pick-up from the airport or the train- and busstation. It will take about 1,5 hours to reach the 'Giggling Tree'.
When you come by bus to Yangshuo you will find several taxis, minibusses and/or motorbikes to get you to our place. They wait at the taxistand, near the EXIT of the busstation. Taxis usually charge 30 yuan for the ride. If you are able to find a tuktuk they mostly charge 20 yuan and a motorbike-driver will charge between 10 and 15 yuan.
Try to get one of our business cards or have it printed out from our website www.gigglingtree.com . On the backside you will find a small map of the area showing you how to get to our place. Or take our phonenumber, show it to the taxidriver and we can explain how to get here. But nowadays most drivers know the Giggling Tree.
BE AWARE; Sometimes touts try to get you off the bus, before you reach the real busstation. Even the busdriver is involved. Don't get off until you arrive at the actual busstation. You will know once you get there - it is very obvious. We have nobody working for us over there, so anyone claiming to be our manager/friend is simply trying to mislead you. They want to take you to some other hotels.
