Where to stay in Qinhuangdao

Accommodations in Qinhuangdao lie chiefly along its coastline strip, ranging from five-star hotels and bustling chain resorts to affordable inns and guesthouses. In spite of the city's compact size, you may need to take taxis or public transit to get from one attraction to the next, since they spread out along the lengthy coast. Hostels and apartments for short-term rent make good budget-conscious options.
