The Forest is lush and the monkeys are damn cute! Well worth the trip if you like animals. The cool thing is the monkeys are all just hanging out free range they're not caged up at all. My advice though is to read all the instructions. We didn't... My partner got a little take away gift from one of the... More

First time in Bali ~ travelled with my mum in July 2015. Was average, what can I say. Sure the monkeys were cute, but that's about it! Haha

We only stayed for about 30 mins, my travel buddy was not too happy about the pushy monkeys and we saw a girl that had gotten bitten by one. Guess it's a nice experience if you like monkeys, and they're not tied up, which is nice.

Excellent few hours roaming around the monkey forest there are over 700 monkeys roaming around as you walk around. Buy some bananas and watch what happens you will have monkeys eating out of your hands they sit on your shoulders and you can get some excellent pictures Recommend this place

I was very hesitate to go here... our group had visited Uluwatu temple a few days prior and those monkeys were so aggressive! However the monkey forest is much more relaxed.. unless you have food or a bottle in your hand they really don't bother with you. There are people selling bananas around the forest if you'd like a more... More

Monkey Forest is a very funny place to go to when in Ubud! The monkeys are curious so buy some bananas and try to feed them. Keep a banana above your head and the monkeys will clime onto your shoulder and grab the banana.

We visited the Monkey Forest Ubud, the experience was thoroughly enjoyable, lots of fun, the monkeys climb all over you and you can feed them by buying some bananas. Absolutely fantastic value for money and a brilliant day out - definitely a must when visiting Bali.

Best place ever to have monkeys on you and eating out of your hand. A ton of monkeys put on a great show. Worth buying some bananas to get them onto your lap or shoulders We had a blast!
