Guillermo, because you will transit in two Chinese cities, you won’t qualify for the 72 hour free transit in China.
And your total layover in China will be more than 24 hours, so you won’t be eligible for the 24 hour direct transit either.
Thus, you need to apply for a tourist L type or transit G type entry permit in advance for your trip.
