Pretty cool!

The monkeys are so cute! But do be careful as they will approach you! If you have no food on you then you'll be fine (though one did grab at my shoe). If you do have food on you... read more

I went to this monkey forest in ubud at May with my husband and son. The monkey was very funny and little bit agressive, they make my two years son panic and start crying but it's very fun to closed them. We could buy banana $5 for feeds the monkey.

The monkey forest sanctuary was a ton of fun- when else are you going to hang out with free ranging monkeys all day? It was very interesting to stay in one spot and just watch the behaviors of the monkeys. The cremation temple is a trip as the statues are all grotesque and comical. It was also funny to watch...

The moneys are very cool animals you just have to keep alert i stayed close to the guide as they had a stick to wack them if they attacked do not buy the bannas at the front or your just asking to get attacked. It was very nice place.

Being able to walk around with free-roaming monkeys was really fun. They are mischievous though - hang on to your sunglasses!

Must see if you are in Ubud. The monkies are great. Just don't carry food with you. Even in your bag ad they will find it! I didn't have any jump on me. You just have to be careful. Even water they try and get out of your hands.

Really enjoyed the monkey forest it was fun dont bother trying to hide banana's in your pockets they spot them from anywhere. The little baby monkeys are very cute and cheeky .. Great to see animals free and certainly well fed .. Dont take anything they can grab off you easily hold onto your sunnies and keep your handbags closed..... More

Monkeys are everywhere, right from the parking lot! So be very careful of your belongings once you came out from your car! Basically monkeys are the highlight of this sanctuary, bought a bunch of bananas to feed it. It was amazing and the kids love it!

Spent an enjoyable hour or so wandering around the monkey sanctuary near Ubud. This area is set out like an open zoo with the animals wandering freely along the paths and surrounding forest. They are fed regularly, so there's none of the aggression you sometimes get with the fully wild monkeys who have become used to being fed by tourists.... More

This place was beautiful with the tree, the sculptures. And really funny with the monkeys. Just be carrefull with your waterbotlle, they love jump on it. Also it's cheap for visit it
