A Word of Welcome
Dear China Travelers and Friends,
Many of our valued clients and friends have written to us after their trip to China to tell us how surprised they were by what they saw in our huge and fascinating country. It's most impressive to see how so many travelers have turned their visit to China from just a thought into the best memories of a lifetime.
China, with a history of over 5,000 years, has handed down an abundant legacy to her people, and this venerable piece of land. We have so many world-class attractions to offer, such as the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace in Beijing; Terracotta Warriors & Horses and the History Museum in Xi'an; Yangshuo and Li River cruise in Guilin and the Bund, Yu Yuan Garden and the Shanghai Museum in Shanghai as well as the magnificent Yangtze River Cruise; and not forgetting natural wonders like Mt. Huangshan and Jiuzhaigou, etc. all of which attract many thousands of visitors to our country every year.

Incheon (South Korea) - Tianjin (China) - Jeju (South Korea)
As you can see, this portion cannot be treated as a transit because you are departing from one country (South Korea) and returning to the same country (South Korea) after your Chinese destination.
Your stop in Shanghai is definitely eligible for 144 hour visa free transit because this is an example of real transit:
London (UK) - Shanghai (China) - Incheon (South Korea)
Since you have to obtain a Chinese visa, you are advised to apply for a Chinese tourist (L) visa, but a long term one with duration of 2 years. This is the best solution for you, but you should have in mind that you have to specifically ask for this 2 year, multiple entry visa and your argument will be that you need it because you intend to travel more often to China during the following two years. Like this, you will not have to bother yourselves even with the first Chinese stop in Shanghai.
If yes, upon landing, take metro line 6 to East Coach Station and transfer to metro line 3 to Tuodong Sports Center Station, Exit A. Afterwards, walk west around 600 meters to find the hotel.
Or you can also take a taxi from airport to the destination directly. The cab fare is CNY 130 to CNY 140 in the day time.
