This is a walk of harassment with monkeys literally jumping all over you, grabbing your things to try and get food. A bit disappointing

I would say that this is the one must visit place in Ubud. The monkeys are so cheeky. They try and steal you hat, water, keys ect, so be very careful with your stuff. The are well fed and looked after. Great place to spend...More

Entrance fee is 80,000 per person, with free parking if you keep your ticket. It's a really cool park/forest where monkeys roam free and where you'll have plenty of opportunities for cool Instagram worthy pictures (if that's your thing)

Within 5 mins of being here I was attacked by a monkey and bitten - spent the entire day in hospital getting jabs and medicines. Really would not recommend

I made it a point to check out the Sacred Monkey Forest. It is a pretty spot, lots if walks around temples and sacred springs. It can get crowded, I would recommend going earlier in the day.

If you like monkeys this is a place to spend about an hour. They go about doing their business and occasional lash out at tourists. Don't bring food or stare at them

Lovely place to visit. Beautiful trees, plants and of course cute as ever monkeys. Lots of them. The monkeys are very happy just walking around you as you go along. We took around an hour to see everything. There were huge cages with sweet potatoes...More

Hi there, I’m afraid I don’t have this information. Just be sure to follow park rules. Eg don’t make eye contact, don’t feed the monkeys etc. If they grab a water bottle, just let it go. Don’t fight them. One of the monkeys... More
