A must see!!!! $3.00 entry and loads to see. I felt like I was in the Indiana Jones film set. The monkeys were safe and if you follow the rules there is no need to worry.

This is a great place to go in the middle of the day to escape the tropical heat and watch the 'monkey business'. Be weary though that the monkeys are inquisitive creatures and if you sit down quietly they come over to investigate. You will see people selling bananas for you to feed them with, but there's no need to... More

Really nice place and great to see the monkeys roaming around however you need to be on guard. The monkeys will grab at your pockets and anything you have they tried to steal my purse, and became quite aggressive. They potentially carry diseases so don't get too close. It does get very hot in the forest and you will need... More

How bizare to meet these primates ambling through temples and junge. A truly unique adventure.Be wary, they are wild creatures but will do no harm if you endeavour to do the same.

Like any day care, you will experience a mixture of personalities! Thankfully the really bold ones seem to have stayed at home or were in the naughty corner for our visit! There were 7 in our group and only 1 (red head) seemed to attract all the attention ( including sitting on her shoulder to eyeball her) but did see... More

Don't buy food to feed the monkeys, and keep loose items under control. It's great, especially if you follow the trails away from the central plaza, the less aggressive monkeys will approach much more friendly if you just sit quietly on one of several platforms on the trails

We visited from nusa area so about 1.5 hours each way in car. I would follow the advice given by the Forrest guards. No plastic bags. No hidden bananas in pockets - if you do take handbag make sure it has no food in it! These money's are clever and I f there is anything to find they will find... More

It was quite a creepy place because monkeys are every where here. Anyway, one will get use to it very fast. There were some unique statues inside this place. ALERT!!! Please take care of your belongings because monkeys will take away your stuffs whenever they have the chance!
