Kunshan (simplified Chinese: 昆山; Hanyu Pinyin: Kūnshān; Wade-Giles: K'un-shan) is a satellite city in the greater Suzhou region that is administratively at the county-level in southeast Jiangsu, China, just outside Shanghai. It currently ranks as the most economically successful county-level administration in China. It is culturally significant as the origin of Kunshan diao, the melody which ultimately evolved into Kunqu, China's oldest extant theatre art.
It is known as the birthplace of Gong Xian and Soong Ching-ling.
Recent purchases of iPods from Apple Computer show Kunshan as the origination point for shipments.
