This was such a beautiful experience! Strongly advice you to visit it while you're in Ubud and after you enter the gate, take some time to read the rules. It was a fun day, we took lots of pictures and hanged out with the monkeys. It wasn't very crowded so we enjoyed some areas just for ourselves. Make sure your... More

While we were on a fast moving tour of Ubud and surrounding areas, this was one stop where we could have just turned into a day event. Watching the monkeys play around was so much fun, feeding them and have them interact with us was even better!

If you are staying in Ubud, certainly do make a stopover. It's a nice park, you can walk around, take pictures while monkeys run, climb and jump around; you do get the feeling you are at the heart of the jungle. Always remain vigilant since the monkeys can get agressive, even if they are used to visitors, they remain wild... More

The monkeys are very cute but some of them are pretty naughty. They climb on you if you get close to them and they also want anything you have on you, jewelry, glasses and so on. So you'd better have no accesories, when going at the monkeys. Be careful with your backpack as well because they try to open any... More

Monkey forest is a peacefull place early morning when there is not so many tourists. Lots of monkeys obviously but they are not agressive until you transport foods. The walk is nice and not so hot.

I was impressed by this forest, don't know why I didn't go there last year. But only got 30min before the heavy rain started. But some parts of the forest is just like a fairytale. I can recommend it, very cheap entrance too.

It is exactly what you imagine, it's a forest and it's full of monkeys. It's really fun to go there for a while in the morning before you head out to some more interesting activity. We took a 30' minute walk inside. It was great to see the monkeys interact with each other and the visitors but don't expect to... More

Spent an enjoyable hour at the forest walking around, enjoying the cool, watching the monkeys watching us, and watching other people get themselves into trouble... Trouble? Well, monkeys suddenly jumping onto them, scratching at their half-open backpacks, or snatching their drunks from their hands. Some visitors laughed, some screamed, all took photos! My boy was petrified the monkeys would attack... More
