It was baking hot, packed with tourists and hard to relax. Lots of monkeys and the baby ones were very cute.

If you love monkeys and ancient temples this is the place for you. Very central in Ubud making it simple to get to. Full of monkeys and beautiful architecture to explore. Very well priced for any tourist attraction.

As you could assume there where monkeys all over! Very nice surroundings with cool statues, some temples and a lot of forest. The feeling of actually being in the jungle made it a really cool experience. They also had more “zoo-like” spaces but they were...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
