Its interesting to watch the monkeys hang for photo's or beg for food for about 60 to 90 minutes. I wouldn't plan anymore time than this.

Lots of monkeys and nature! The bananas were a bit expensive, but it is expected in a tourist destination. Overall, Love the interaction with the cheeky monkeys!

If you're in Ubud you have to go to the monkey Forest. Beautiful scenery and full of monkeys. Even saw babies. Be respectful though, if you don't bother them or have food they will leave you alone. If you want a monkey to climb onto your shoulder then buy a banana off the ladies there.

It saddens me to write this review as I have been to the Forest a few times with no issue. Unfortunately on this occasion the experience was very different. I had read the recent reviews and ignored them as I had had no issues previously - Big Mistake!! We had our 8 year old with us. He was holding 1... More

Worth the visit but don't expect much except seeing cute (or not so cute) monkeys. Entertaining for the concept. Great for kids and families.

We loved the experience of monkey forest. Exercise common sense and you'll have a great time and some great photos. If you are ok with the monkeys climbing on you, try to attract the adolescent ones. Avoid the larger dominant males and don't get between mothers and babies or the monkeys and their food. Don't bring in bagged food, or... More

I enjoyed this part of our trip very much. It's like going to a safari, you can see the monkeys free in their natural habitat. I was a bit scared at the beginning because we had a bag with bananas and they almost attacked us for the fruits. After we gave the bananas everything was ok. Beware as they are... More

If you are into watching monkeys run wild and climbing on tourists, you will enjoy this. My group did not have a great experience as one of us was bit and had to endure a series of rabies shots. These monkeys have no fear of humans and are used to being fed and allowed to do what they please. I... More
