Yes, you can apply for a stay permit in the airport and then leave. The Baixiang Holiday Hotel Haiying Bay located at No.1 Yingbin Avenue is recommended. It costs about CNY600 per night. By the way, they have free pick-up service.

Thanks for that Dave.

Just wondering, why would I need a stay permit if I already have a 30 day visa. That is my entry into China right? The next flight out from Fuzhou to Nanjing is a domestic one.

Well, you are eligible for 24-hour free-visa transit because your stopover is only about 2 hours. Thus you don't need a visa in advance.
