Overall an enjoyable experience although lacking in substance for those seeking more than a quick snap with a macaques. I would rate 3.5 if possible. When you move past the main walkway to the routes further afield (especially the conservation walk), the fewer visitors makes the experience more serene.

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!

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.
