We visited the monkey forest during our stay in Ubud. We hadnt seen wild monkeys before and found it a great experience. Dont take anything the monkies and take from you (hats, sunglasses, loose things in pockets) one monkey went in my partners pocket when we took the camera out. Didnt like that the guards had sling shots to scare... More

I did adore going to this place. Watching all the monkeys was so much fun. I had initially walked past the gates for a couple of days before venturing inside. Before even getting inside I had an incident with the monkey's. I was trying to photograph a mother and child when I found myself with a monkey climbing hanging off... More

The forest itself is wonderful, but there is a clear problem with carrying capacity of the monkey population: it's overcrowded! Monkeys are unusually restless and aggressive as they fight for any piece of food they can get from people - don't bring food!! Four years ago, when I visited the first time I was attacked because of that, and the... More

My friend and I loved the Monkey Forest. It was cheap but brought you into closer contact with the monkeys than anywhere we have been to date! The monkeys were menacing at all, just mischievous! With the right respect for the environment, it was a privilege to see the monkeys and sacred sites in the forest. We both had monkeys... More

We loved Ubuds town....where the monkey forest is. One stole my husbands hat. I was pregnant so I didn't get near them or try to feed them and I was fine. We did not get viciously attacked like other people stated.

The overall experience is very good. Excellent I would even say. But be very careful because dispute what reviews state a monkey can and will bite if he thinks you are hiding food. I sat down at the great Temple which is the place where a lot of juvenile monkeys are with their mothers. It is also a place where... More

It is a wonderful place to find in the middle of everything urban. I recommend allowing maybe 2 to 3 hours for the visit and walking / strolling around the whole area.

What an amazing experience, walking through a small forest area, surrounded by monkeys, who are more than willing to relieve you of your food, drink and anything else they can get the claws on. However, at no stage did we feel afraid or threatened. Buy a bunch of bananas and have the monkeys climb on your shoulder and eat them,... More
