Chimelong Spaceship is more than just a theme park. It’s a part of Chimelong International Ocean Tourist Resort – a gargantuan resort that sits in the city of Zhuhai, China. The city is only a short 1-hour drive from Macau and ~2-hour ferry ride from Hong Kong, which makes it pretty accessible for Singaporeans.

Getting to Chimelong Spaceship from Singapore

Getting to the city of Zhuhai isn’t too complicated. While there are no direct flights, Singaporeans have the option of reaching the city via its neighbour, Macau, or Hong Kong – both being ~4-hour flights from SG.

The quickest way would be to hop on a 20-minute ferry ride (~¥18, ~S$3.50) from Macau Inner Harbour Ferry Terminal to Zhuhai Wanzai Wharf, which departs every 45 minutes from 8am till 4.15pm.

So if you’re looking for something not too far but beyond our usual suspects like Thailand and Malaysia, hit up Chimelong Spaceship. Don’t forget to get some sick architecture shots in the process!
