Great short visit! Monkeys everywhere. I'd never seen monkeys diving and swimming in water before and here they not only do that but also push each other in the water, wrestling and cavorting. Buy the bananas but be prepared to give them out quickly. The monkeys are smart and know you've hidden them in your pocket. My husband tried to... More

It's a beautiful place, but the monkeys were just too aggressive for me. Sometimes it was scary to walk past them. The baby-monkeys were cute though :)

This is a nature photographer's dream, these long-tailed macaques are generally well behaved as they are well fed and looked after, so visitors can get up close and personal for an intimate view of the adults and their young. The only note of caution is if you buy bananas to feed the monkeys, be prepared to have them climb all... More

monkeys are super friendly, and very intelligent! cheap entrance fee, great lunch spot close by. buy a few stacks of bananas but don't let them see you holding them, because they will literally jump you for each one.

Visited the monkey area in Ubud and witnessed monkeys jumping on people who bought bananas or other food with them. I would not have wanted a monkey jumping on me - some people got a bit frightened. Simple solution ... don't take food and don't buy the bananas and then the monkeys don't seem to bother you. Then you can... More

Got to pay to see the monkeys. The sign says do not feed the monkeys but people are still feeding them and some so aggressive. Not worth paying to go in.
