If you fly to Hong Kong or Macau first, then spend the night or transit into mainland China, there are certain regions that do not require a Chinese immigration visa issuance in advance of your arrival.

Hainan Island up to 15 days

If I may chip in with Hainan I do believe from talking to expats who live in Hainan you can get a VOA ( visa on arrive) at the airport when you land in Hainan for 15 days , but you must fly from Hong Kong !! With the down side being flights are only I think 1-2 a day compared with mainland flights to the Island with 20 or so a day !! From what the expats have told me no special tour is needed and you just fly in and be issued with a VOA and this visa is valid for mainland China as well!.
