Monkey Forest

Great to visit. Good experience. Well worth a visit with your family . Watch out for any items in your hands as monkeys will steal It. Bananas available to feed monkeys. 😃👍

As soon as we stepped out of the car, a guide approached us and headed on inside. The guide first sold us a packet of peanuts to feed the monkeys (note:one packet is enough. Be sure to have loose change coz they dont.). While going around, the guide wasn't talking much so we had to ask the questions. There are... More

Went with my wife and young child. Firstly, the monkeys are not friendly. Yes, they get very close, even climbing on you to steal things or take bananas. But not in a friendly way. More in a, I own this place and you are in my way, way. Was good fun walking though and watching them, but not for a... More

Visited for first time. Nice to see the monkeys close up. Listen to the guides advise about no eye contact etc. with a trip.

Awesome place. The kids loved seeing the monkeys up close. It is safe for young children to walk around. The monkeys only seemed to jump on the people offering bananas.

I don't know about you, but I love monkeys. I've been to a few places that say they have tons of monkeys and this place blew all of them out of the water. They come close and are super friendly.

Every time I'm in Bali I try to visit the attractions and this time it was really average the place was so overrun with tourists that it has taken the fascination away from the (Sacred Monkey Forest) mind you I haven't been in July before but in November it's amazing.

We decided to go to the Monkey Forest on our way back to Seminyak, after having done a cycle tour in Ubud. We had heard of it, but had no expectations. There were so many monkeys everywhere. You can buy bananas to feed the monkeys, and they do not starve! The mothers are very protective of their young and will... More

But in this place, they... More
