We liked this forest and experiencing the monkeys in their habitat! They are used to tourists giving them bananas so they look for it in your backpacks! There is no much information about the forest and the monkeys there but it was worth seeing it

Ubud Monkey Forest is a small rain forest and nature reserve with temple complex dwelt by some group of monkeys and other tropical animals strategically located in the hearth of Ubud Village, precisely located in the region of Padangtegal Village. This place is probably the most famous nature attraction in Ubud with over than 500 tourists a day.

If you walk down to the pool, many people throw a coin into the pool, what they believe will be back to Bali again in the future.

When you bring some food like banana or peanut to feed the monkey, don't be so surprised if the monkey will come and grab all the food even you just enter the monkey forest.

Suggestion :
- Beware if you bring key, glass, mobile phone or anything. The monkey interest to check you out if you have full pocket. Split your stuff, and enjoy the sightseeing.

Time to visit :
- Afternoon to evening is a good time

This is a must do activity in Bali, especially if you like to have a laugh. The monkeys are cheeky and will find the bananas you are hiding under your shirt. Plenty of laughs with kids and teenagers. The monkeys will jump on your shoulder if you have a banana. The staff are very helpful at encouraging the monkeys for the photo shot. Recommend you buy bananas to take with you. They are the bait that will attract the monkey's attention. Great value at $2 p/p

This park is full of monkeys and fantastic corners draped in vines with mystical moss covered statues at every turn. Watch out though the monkeys are pretty cute.. and capable of stealing from your bags. One rushed me tore a neat hole in a plastic bag I was carrying and pinched a packet of honey roast peanuts, all in the blink of an eye.

Don't by pass this site thinking you've seen monkeys before. We almost did and I am happy we visited. All they tell you about monkeys aggressively seeking bananas is true BUT, if you use common sense, remove dangly jewelry/large hair accessories and take the posted advice, your experience will not be a bad one. Avoid any issues by not feeding the monkeys and enjoy photographing them instead while they eat someone else's banana. What we truly enjoyed was the beautiful FOREST and the many moss covered sculptures. There is also a temple you can visit in the MF and all just steps away from town.
