I went wanting to see monkeys, and left thrilled to have seen rainforest-clad temples, deep river trenches, and one of the finest stone sculpture menageries I've ever seen. This place is magic. I had heard a lot of things about naughty monkeys here, and none of them seemed to be true. In fact, I wanted to see a little more naughtiness. What I got was a lot of cute macaques, a handful of which it seemed prudent to steer clear of. The giant banyan trees were brilliant, the forest regal, and my time well spent.

A fascinating temple sanctuary for macaques, with beautiful surroundings. One major caveat- be careful-- I was bitten by an overexcited monkey who was being fed bananas by a tourist, who then jumped from him and ran to me. Do not feed the monkeys, regardless of locals trying to sell you bananas for that purpose! Be very careful of getting too close to the monkeys, who can be very aggressive, and stay away from idiot tourists who feed or try and play with them- staffers are few and far between and likely won't be on hand to help if anything happens.

Monkey Forest was pretty laid back - not many people bugging you to buy anything, although that may have changed since I've been there. Yes, every city seems to have it's own Monkey Temple, but the Balinese sculptures made it extra special.

The monkeys might be pure, banana-seeking evil (insurance attached to your ticket covers accidental death and dismemberment whilst in the Sacred Monkey Forest!) but darned if they aren't cute, and the small sylvan patch they occupy towards the south end of Ubud's main drag is nothing if not beautiful. Featuring temples overgrown with lush green, and enormous banyan trees sweeping over streams and waterfalls, it's a magical little place and great for photographs, even if it's also likely to be packed.

Vast forest area which gives the traveler a chance to commune with the trees and interact with playful monkeys. Bring a good camera as there are plenty of postcard-worthy images to take home. Don't wear jewelry or sunglasses as monkeys tend to be mischievous and snatch them off of you!

Monkey Forest, Jl Monkey Forest, Ubud, ☎ +62 361 971304 (email@example.com), . A sacred forest full of ravenous monkeys, so don't bring any food or you will risk bites and a need for rabies injections. If you are bitten, visit the first aid clinic near the entrance at the bottom of Jalan Monkey Forest. Stroll through to find Pura Dalem Agung Padangtegal, a temple of the dead. A visit to the very informative website beforehand is highly recommended. Entrance 20,000 Rp for adults.

The monkey forest in Ubud is covered with monkeys- they are located everywhere and some of them can get very aggressive so make sure that you dont bring any food with you and that you dont get too close to the monkeys. Please avoid purchasing bananas from the vendors outside of the park because feeding the monkeys just perpetuates their aggressive behavior.

A top attraction in Ubud and justifiably so. Intricate carvings and statues of demons eating people would be enough to make this an worthwhile site to visit.
But the monkeys are what make this a completely unique experience. Hundred of them stroll around the temple grounds looking for the foolish tourist who decided it was a good idea to buy them some bananas.
Be warned, they are aggressive and will steal from you, so watch your cameras.
