Our Story

The Giggling Tree is a “dream come through” for Paulien Leisink (1971, Eefde) and Karst Draaisma (1968, Tytsjerk).

They started to explore the world in 2000. Being youth social workers by profession they spent two years traveling and working in projects in Romania, Ghana, Kenia, Nepal and China.

In 2004 they became tour leaders for a Dutch company. This job brought them back to China and seeing the opportunities of tourism they started searching for the right place for their own guesthouse. In Aishanmen they found the spot that is now the Giggling Tree.

They were able to sign a contract for 15 years with 20 owners of 27 plots.

Renovations took a year and on Friday the 13th of April 2007  the doors opened.
