Just 5 km outside of Yangshuo is Giggling Tree, a unique hostel housed in a traditional farmhouse. Catering for different budgets, we have cosy accommodation in private rooms and dormitories, decorated in a rustic style with bamboo furniture and wooden-beamed ceilings. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms.

We are located in the little country village Ai Shan Men, and enjoy beautiful views of the Yulong River valley, the Karst Mountains and paddy fields.

Our restaurant serves western and local cuisine, which can be enjoyed in our peaceful courtyard. As well as a range of guest facilities including a games room and a DVD room we can arrange a number of activities and tours including bamboo rafting, Chinese cookery, Kung Fu, Tai Chi, calligraphy, hot air ballooning, canoeing on the Li River, daytrips to caves and rice terraces and entrance to the spectacular sound and light show.

Prices are per person per night.

Most people arrive in Guilin before coming to Yangshuo, because it has an airport and train station. 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, minibuses and/or motorbikes to get you to our place. They wait at the taxi-stand, near the EXIT of the bus station. Taxis usually charge 30 RMB for the ride. If you are able to find a tuktuk they mostly charge 20 RMB and a motorbike-driver will charge between 10 and 15 RMB.

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 phone number, show it to the taxi driver 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 bus station. Even the bus driver is involved. Don't get off until you arrive at the actual bus station. 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.

Located Near

The Giggling Tree guesthouse, restaurant, terrace and swimmingpool is located near the Yulong-river. In the middle of the Karst-mountains and ricepaddies of the Yulongvalley. Less than 5 kilometres west of Yangshuo. The perfect spot to start many outdoor activities.
