You should have a hotel booking (for overnight stays) - or, if staying at a private place, the phone number of the host
I will be staying Monday-Sunday (under the 6day / 144hr rule) That being said based on the interpretation http://www.sh-immigration.gov.cn/lis...?lx=40&id=4414 the clock starts at 00:00 of the following day.

7.Q: When does the 144 hours of visa-exemption stay start?

A: After confirming his / her qualification for 144-hour visa-exemption transit, the immigration inspection station will issue the foreign passenger a temporary entry permit. Then from 00:00 of the next day upon his / her arrival in China, he / she can stay in the administrative precincts of Shanghai Municipality, Jiangsu Province and Zhejiang Province without a Chinese visa for 144 hours.
We have a booking at the Fairmont on the Bund.

We could even outbound via NRT/Other, but I don't feel this is necessary.
