Decided to buy some bananas to feed to the monkeys which was fun my buddy I was with had them sticking part way out his pockets and they jumped up on... More

A jungle in the middle of this beautiful town! We spent 3 hours wandering around and observing these fascinating creatures for just 4$ CAD 2.5$USD so worth it! I would highly recommend going but make sure to be careful with valuables. We left our sunglasses in our bag but a smart monkey unzipped it and grabbed mine, we almost lost... More

Enjoyed our visit ...obviously tons of tourists (in high season must be a zoo..haha) but it is well done and a fun place for an hour visit watching the antics of the monkey's and humans (perhaps even more so).

With almost 700 monkeys roaming around in a jungle/ temple environment, you'll never forget this experience! A must do while in Ubud!

A must see in Ubud . Entrance is around $4 and its postcard material. The monkeys are a lot of fun to observe and be around . They can get feisty at the sight of food . They are all over the forest and make sure you catch the feeding session . Its fun to watch go at it .... More

Enjoyed the trip into the Forrest, very beautiful. Although very paranoid about the monkeys stealing things. Noticed a few wanting to bite visitors!

The monkeys are a blast! We didn't stay for more than 45 minutes, which was plenty. But the monkeys were adorable and so fun to have climbing on us. Watch your stuff though, they're little thiefs!

A Bali must see. Its fun to feed the monkeys but be warned they love food and water bottles so if you have them they will likely jump on you. The place is gorgeous and its its the postcard I imagined of Bali with old temples built in the middle of a jungle. Don't waste your money on a tour,... More

Everyone should definitely go here. It's only $4 for adults to get in and it has a really nice rainforest in it. The monkeys can get a bit feisty though so I wouldn't take small kids there unless they were under close supervision. You can buy some bananas for $2 and the staff will get the monkeys up on your...
