It's a good place to have first experience to touch a monkey. They are so friendly if you dont show anger to them. Fells wonderful when you feel their soft hand. Must visit when you are in Ubud.

I had not been to the Monkey Forrest for a few years and as Iam living in Ubud now I thought I should visit again. I was pleasantly surprised with the changes. Lots more Monkey's and kept under control by local staff to make sure the Monkey' are not too aggressive. They have added more walking paths through the Forrest... More

If you visit Ubud you cannot leave it without having seen some monkeys. When you walk past this forest, you'll meet monkeys enough. Don't forget not to take food with you as these animals quite quickly see what you're eating and they're very impudent!

Monkey temple is located in the central Ubud, so if you stay in Ubud don’t forget to go there. Entrance fee is cheap and you can spend there more hours. There is many monkeys. You can see them from the gate, where they try to get some bananas. Monkeys are not aggressive, but be careful – sometimes they throw sticks... More

Monkey Forest in Ubud is not a bad experience, but definitely it does not have anything to do with watching monkeys in their NATURAL habitat. There is plenty of monkeys there, and as always with these animals you can have fun watching them play, jumping on the tree branches or running around. But they are spoiled with tourists feeding them... More

Unless of course you want to see a bunch of westerners teasing monkeys and inviting them to sit on their shoulders etc for a bit if fruit.

This was definitely fun. It's not very big but the entrance fee was only 30k. We watched the monkeys play and fight for a while which was hilarious. You can also buy bananas and they'll climb you to grab them! Scary at first but worth it!

The cute little monkeys are everywhere!!! You'll see an abundance of them. My advice, don't bring water or buy bananas because they will chase you and jump on you. One of the monkeys yawned and I was surprised at how big their fangs are. I also noticed a monkey going for an earring of a lady, trying to rip it... More

If you LOVE monkeys you will love the monkey forest. They are everywhere so as my title suggests beware. They like to climb and steal. Keep items enclosed cause they are cheeky and will take the sunglasses off your head or your camera if you are not careful. Entry is super cheap and the markets surrounding the forest are also...
