Monkeys in the park

This park is so nice, the monkeys walk literally between the people. You can buy bananas and the monkeys will climb on you to get de banana.

The entrance fee was about $4, resonable price. The place was very beautiful and interesting. The monkeys were not mean or mischievous as the ones at Uluwatu temple, haha.

A beautiful place, definitely a must visit when in Ubud. Do be careful, though, the monkeys are little thieves. Do not take any food with you, they will find it!

This is a must when you visit Bali, just be careful. The monkeys can be little thiefs and they might pull your earrings :p

A beautiful sanctuary in Ubud. Lots of monkeys that never fail to amuse. The walk through the forest is steamy but well pathed and interesting.

The monkey forest in Ubud is definitely worth visiting! One will quickly understand and probably feel why it's considered sacred by the Balinese. Obviously, the monkeys playing monkeys are hilarious and great fun to watch but the forest itself is at least as great.

Obviously a must do if visiting Ubud but was mildly let down. You can see lots of monkeys sitting on the perimeter fence but for a small fee of 40k there is no reason to not enter

The forest is just amazing, an oasis of rest in the middle of busy Ubud. Go early as it will become very crowded later at the day. The monkeys are used to people and getting feeded, this makes them pretty rude but is still defenitly worth visiting!
