Date: 30th of Aug, 2019 - Great location, dirty pool and expensive drinks - 3/5 on Tripadvisor
e that a lot of new buildings are build right in front, behind and next to the giggling tree. Staff is really nice and helpfull.
It is nice to have every day a lot of bottels of water in the room. The room is nice, big and clean.
Also it is great to be able to order pancakes for the kids and chat with all the dutch people (feels like a dutch invasion). Continue reading..
It is a lot of fun to relax and drive a scooter in the area.
The drinks however are more expensive than in the rest of China (beer is 20 yuan and a coke is 12, however the Chinese restaurant in front of the giggling Sells beer for 8 yuan and a coke for 5. The swimming pool was really dirty (even the old dutch owners that came by where dissapointed that this was neglected this way) and this was probably the worst we had seen anywhere in C View Less...

Perfect location, great staff and food. Hire the electric scooters or bikes to get around easily. Really recommend this place as the Yulong area is stunning, so much better than saying in Yangshuo town.
Date: 9th of Aug, 2019 - Not so good - 2/5 on Tripadvisor
I’m choosing a bad mark because it’s not so crazy as told in the comments.
The food is good, the place is cool, the swimming pool too.
But it’s really expensive for China.
There are constructions just next to it so you are woken up at 7am.
There is not much light in the rooms and no views on the land. Continue reading..
The staff is nice but doesn’t really know the surroundings and tries to make you book everything from the hotel. But watch out, you’ll pay much more than if you buy everything yourself.
For example, renting electric scooters :
Giggling : 90-130 yuans per day
Surroundings : 50 yuans per day
It’s like that for everything.
So yes they speak English and that’s maybe what most people who come here appreciate but if you can manage the things on your own, just do it yourself. View Less...
Date: 4th of Aug, 2019 - Great hotel - 4/5 on Tripadvisor
This is a great hotel in beautiful surroundings. The staff are very attentive and the rooms are nice (no TVs though) but maybe due an update. Food is good and well priced. Lots of tour options from the hotel.
The hotel is no longer owned by a Dutch person.
Date: 20th of Jun, 2019 - Possibly the friendliest guesthouse in China? - 5/5 on Tripadvisor
I stayed here for 2 nights in June 2019. A beautiful quiet location outside Yangshuo in the Yulong River. Converted farm buildings beautifully restored into comfortable cool rooms with a fab social area, restaurant and pool.
The staff were amazing, so friendly, helpful, genuine and caring. Continue reading..
I just wish I could have stayed longer!

Date: 19th of May, 2019 - Simple country inn - 3/5 on Tripadvisor
I don’t really know how to start.This old country house doesn’t lack charme and the pool is nice and clean and the rooms are ok. But overlooking the pool there is à building and another one under construction. Ok if you turn your back to the buildings you have a lovely view. Our room on the ground floor was confortable but humid . Continue reading..
The atmosphere of the hotel is friendly and the people nice, the prices are low and its a good value for your money . View Less...
Date: 21st of Apr, 2019 - The best place to stay in Yangshuo - 5/5 on Tripadvisor
We had 4 perfect days at The Giggling Tree. The hospitality and food was excellent, and the staff were always there to help. Situated in the middle of the National Park-area, sights like Moon Hill and the Water Caves are easy to reach on bike. Continue reading..
The scenic route along the Yulong River is also worth a trip in itself. Highly recommended. View Less...
