72 hours visa question

Hi, im not sure if i can buy this ticket cause im confused about my situation in this case. On the first flight i have just a 2hour transit in shangai onmy way to bangkok. I think i should be ok with it. But on flight 2 and 3 (bangkok- beijing / beijing- tokyo) My plan is to stay 72 hours in beijing but: i have transit 2 hours in shangai . Does it affect my 72 hours in beijing or my entry is at shangai? and also my flight arrives beijing at 11:45 on the 25th and next one is 4:40pm on the 28th. Its technically almost 77 hours but since i need to be 3 hours earlier at ariport and stuff .. would it be ok if i just go back to the airport at 12 to be ok with the 72 hours and wait for my flight?

Hi, to my knowledge, you have to apply for a transit as you said you need to transit via both Shanghai and Beijing (flight 2). Please contact the airport transit service for details:
+86-10-56095400 Beijing International Airport
+86-21-51105100 Shanghai Pudong and Hongqiao Airport.
