About:72-Hour Visa-Free Transit

US-Hong Kong-Shanghai-US

Hello there!

I'm traveling from the US to Hong Kong for a few days and was planning on staying in Shanghai over the weekend (Friday through Sunday). Will I qualify for the transit free policy?
For my return back into the US, can I travel via Shanghai without a visa? If not, could I return via Hong Kong to refrain from getting a visa?

Thanks in advance!

US-Hong Kong-Shanghai-US on non-stop flights is eligible for 144 hours free transit in Shanghai. US-Hong Kong-Shanghai-Hong Kong-US is not eligible because that's not a transit in Hong Kong.
