Nice to see

Nice thing to see in ubud, avoid to wear anything that those little monkeys could take. Entry fee doesn't cost much money

A fun couple of hours. Don't listen to all the nanny people saying that it is dangerous. It isn't! I just didn't go near the dirty critters and didn't feed them. Filthy little bludgers they are. Cute though.

The Monkey Forest Sanctuary is a special place inside a special town, a park with hundreds of curious (and sometimes bossy) monkeys that don't take a no for answer. Prepare yourself to be climbed on, demanded food, observed, expelled from an area, bullied or anything a monkey finds it in his rights to do so. Even to take your photographic... More

Visiting the sacred monkey forest is an interesting experience. Although they are very brutal, it is fun to have a walk through the forest.

We loved this place and would go back often. We visited the monkey forest twice, once with a guide and once on our own. The guide helped ensure we had the most fun but this post should enable you to go on your own. We entered at the main entrance on the Jl. Monkey Forest road. The cost is 40.000... More

Close to tourist areas makes the Monkey forest a great first day outing for the family. Set in a beautiful jungle/valley..Also a temple in the forest to explore. Monkey are cheeky and intertaining, just make sure to secure all valubles and food because they can pinch your hat or sun glasses. Also they smell food in your bag it might... More

Visit the Monkey Forest is a must for your trip to Ubud. So many monkeys and a great place to walk around. Easy to find and in the middle of the center of Ubud.

Small entrance fee, loads of cute monkeys. Seeing baby monkeys grabbing their mummies for dear life is just so sweet. No monkey tried to grab my things. One tried to do something to me I think, i got away just in time. Bananas available for purchase around the area, total rip off. I'd urge u not to buy because that's... More

Only costing 40,000idr (£2) per person can't complain it was a very enjoyable experience. After reading reviews on Google I did expect the monkeys to attack you for the bananas but they are quite tame as they are looked after well by the keepers they just climb on you and snatch whatever they think could have food inside.
