Dear, I'm afraid you cannot enjoy the 72 hours visa free policy. You cannot come from HK and then return HK; you must leave CQ for the third country. So you need to change your flight or apply for the visa before you start your journey.

Lily, local Antique Shop which is located at no. 236, Renmin Road, Yuzhong District can be a good choice. They have auctions sometimes where your husband may get some nice items. Another recommendation is the Colletor Trade Market on Zhongxing Road, Yuzhong District.

May you have a good experience!

You may go to Poly Golf Course at No. 1, Longhuai Street, Yubei District. You can contact the staff by dialing 86-023-67883399. Take metro line 3 to Yuan Yang Station. Then, take a taxi there for about CNY 15. Have fun!

Well, according to your limited time, you are suggested to tour around Ci Qi Kou Ancient Town.
After eating breakfast and taking some rest, you can take subway line 3, get off at Lianglukou Station. Then transfer to line 1 to get to Ci Qi Kou Station, Exit 1. After arriving, walk northeast around 850 yards to arrive at the scenic area.
The duration is about 80 mins. And the ticket fare is CNY 7 per person.
In addition, the suggested sightseeing time is 4 to 5 hours. The return way is the same.
