Where to stay in Kunshan

Kunshan's accommodations cater to those on their way to see the nearby water towns. Primarily high-rise hotels, hostels, and guesthouses, they provide international visitors with a place to stay for the night. That said, given the city's position between the gigantic metropolises of Suzhou and Shanghai, many visitors choose to see the attractions near Kunshan while basing themselves in either of those cities.
