It's a beautiful jungle atmosphere and lots of monkeys! I had fun despite the fact that it's touristy. Really fun to wander around. Plenty of peaceful spots and it's a great escape from the traffic and noise of Ubud. You need about 1.5 hours.

This place is super cool if you want to see many monkeys in one place. These monkeys are super friendly and you must purchase banana and feed them. This is super joyous moment to see them eat banana

We visited this on our second day in Ubud. As advised by other travellers we went in early morning, which is a good thing. The forest is pretty empty and feels like a 'enclave' in busy Ubud. No issues with the Monkeys but this could...More
