The Giggling Tree Review

Nestled among the karst mountains outside of Yangshuo, the Giggling Tree is one of China's coolest guesthouses. These traditional farmhouses 2 miles outside town offer amazing views, a refreshing pool, and relaxing terraces in a very chilled-out countryside setting. Owned by a Dutch couple with children, much of the guesthouse has been designed with families in mind. The rooms are clean, spacious, and nicely designed. The dining room serves good Chinese and Western food.
