It's my first experience where I fed monkeys and took them on my shoulders. I am very scared of monkeys but the staff working here encourage me for it...It's an unforgettable experience.

Great attraction. We were dubious before we went due to seeing reviews online about how aggressive the monkeys are.

We saw no aggression what so ever and only hassles those with food (there is a no food policy, but some idiots decided the ignore that rule).

The park rangers were only to happy to take photos and help coax the monkeys in order to get great photos.

The only downside is that some on the paths are slippery, but if you wear the right footwear it shouldn’t be a problem!

I am happy to say that the sanctuary is now much more peaceful. They have done away with the vendors and have food in designated areas provided for the monkeys around the park. The experience now is much less stressful - the monkeys run around doing monkey things and only paying a little attention to the visitors. They will still occasionally jump on someone to try to grab a flashy object, but overall it was very chill and enjoyable.

This place is good for you who seek a lite tracking activity but also love to visit temple at Bali, The monkey forest as the name of this place there is soo many wild monkeys in this area, most of the monkeys are friendly but still have to be careful with your stuff.

One of the most famous thing from this place is the "selfie monkey" the staff that work here sometimes can help you to get the selfie.

I have been going to Monkey Forest for over 10 years, I love how lush it is it. However, on our last visit a few days ago we were just walking through and out of no where my husband was bite. I think the monkey might have been scared by a passing by scooter. I am so glad it wasn't my son, please do not take your kids. My husband is still doing rabies shots.

We were staying in Ubud and of course we had to visit Monkey Forest. Our son absolutely loved it. Well kept areas and humble monkeys. The staff members will take pictures for you as they know how to deal with monkeys. Everyone was very polite and friendly. We had a lovely time.

Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary is a must visit in Bali. But please beware of your belongings. The monkeys may try to jump on you and zip open your bag, or even steal your phone or sunglasses. I saw a monkey jump on top of a woman trying to steal her hat, and another case where a monkey was trying to open someone's backpack
