144 Hour Visa Free Transit Question! So I'm planning on going to Shanghai on my way to Japan.
This is my current travel route: Los Angeles -> Hong Kong (layover) -> Shanghai (72 hours staying) -> Tokyo (9 days) -> Shanghai (10 hours) -> Hong Kong (layover) -> Los Angeles.

On this site it says: 'Key point: The international flights flying in and out of China – from A to B and from B to C – should be non-stop, without a stopover anywhere in Mainland China'

I cannot tell if this is a legal travel path, could someone please help?

Yes, it is a legal travel path and you can enjoy 144 hours visa for 2 times.

We will be touching down Shanghai Pudong Airport in October about 3pm.
1)Should we travel from Shanghai airport to Hangzhou by long distance Bus or take a bus or mrt to the shanghai train station and travel by bullet train? Which is much easier and convenient?
2)I have hard time to search for a good and 3 star hotel for 3 person in a room which is near to tourist spot such as Lingyin temple, six pagoda, the west lake? Is Airbnb an alternative? Anyone can recommend a hotel stay or service apartment or airbnb apartment for only 4 nights stay. Best to near a supermarket to able us to cook for vegetarian meal.
3) How is the weather and temperature around 25th October?

Answered by Kate from ENGLAND | Jun. 20, 2018 21:49

You can try Didi Car Service to book it, but I don’t think it’s necessary. There are many taxis available outside the No. 10 Gate of the airport. The taxi fare may be around 400yuan.
