We had read reviews of the mischievous monkeys saying that they were a little light fingered and loved to run off with sunglasses, cameras and the like so we were wary of them. We still had sunglasses on and phones / camera with us and had no problems but just keep your guard up because there are lots of monkeys... More

Not as bad as I expected, although I didn't risk glasses or jewellery. We made a short visit to the monkey forest after spending a week in Bali and not having seen a monkey. Monkeys were much better behaved than expected. Done it once wouldn't go again.

Fantastic to watch these little things jumping on people shoulders long enough for you to snap a quick photo as they take a banana peel & eat with people watching everywhere. The scenery itself is something to see.Lovely just to wander around this beautiful place watching these monkeys.

Our driver escorted my daughter and I and we took nothing in with us except for a small amount of money in case we decided to buy bananas. The monkeys are wild... More

I had read a lot about the monkeys being annoying and aggressive. The truth is that there's staff almost every five meters making sure that the monkeys behave, so I did feel really safe the whole time. The monkeys are really fun to watch, but be respectful and don't mess with their babies. Avoid feeding them peanuts, buy some bananas... More

Lots of monkeys around you, they even come and climb on you if you have food. Hold tight of whatever you have on you, they steal everything! If you purchase bananas from the local vendor inside the park, you will be surrounded by annoying monkeys! do not hide the food in your bags, they will sense it! Let the monkeys... More

If you visit the ALAS Kedaton monkey forest, it's a place to live. Even if it is one of the tourist attractions of Bali and the people said that it is well worth visiting, but beware that it's a wildlife, please prepare in advance, don't you bitten by monkeys as you visit this place
