At first I was like a kid in candy land...in total awe of being surrounded by monkeys - mouth hanging open in a stunned/stoked expression. However, I quickly realized how vigilant I needed to be as monkeys were climbing on people and acting quite frightening, even though they were completely unprovoked. I followed all the advice, did not bring in... More

Great place to visit. The gardens and settings were very pleasant. Nice structures throughout the park in a lush setting. Careful not wear sunglasses or bring in food in bags or your pockets as their sharp claws may give you a nasty surprise. Entrance fee was very reasonable as well. Worth a visit..

We visited the monkey forest on a recent trip to Bali. For the entry price of only 30,000 pp, it was definitely value for money. The monkeys, as you may expect are VERY cheeky! We saw several visitors almost get their cameras taken due to being in the face of the monkeys.. And that is the key. Follow the rules,... More

If you prefer to interact with animals (in this case, monkeys) on a more personal level, go ahead and ask your driver to take you to the Monkey Forest. Be warned however, not to bring valuables there, as the monkeys can get really aggressive. Look out for your bottled water too, I had mine stolen from the monkeys. Keep it... More

This is a must do for any visitor to Bali! The monkeys won't bother you if you don't take in any food or buy any bananas and just be careful not to take any loose items in with you as they tend to like shiny things! My partner had a great time feeding the monkeys bananas and having them climb... More

Monkey forest experience is a Beautiful jungle and a beautiful walk with many naughty companions. It has a small temple inside. You will love it if u like monkeys but beware as they are ready to grab just about anything. shop for Balinese triklets , batik and crafts outside the forest.

The monkey forest is a great place to while away an hour or so. The monkeys are so watchable. So human in so many ways. We have every facet of life. Even a couple doing what comes naturally. It is all a fascinating study of our close cousins. Just pack your belongings away. Some friends list a pair of glasses... More

Spent hour or so here. This does not have a Zoo feel to it, the set up seems like natural habitat and whilst monkeys are clearly here to put on a show, they seem well looked after (the food on offer being the main reason they dont leave). Monkeys are mischeivous rather than aggresive but that does mean you need... More

50 meters in while sitting down taking photos of the monkeys, a monkey bites my dad. Nothing provoked, no food was around him, it just decided to have a taste of dads arm. Went into the first aid room to get it cleaned out and bandaged up. They say say there's no rabies in the monkeys but we had to... More
