Unbelievably well priced to see what is really a key part of visiting Ubud. Don't carry any shopping bags as the monkeys will think you have food in them and possibly steal it... They are pretty crafty! Beautiful walk through the forest with monkeys everywhere in a real natural environment. You can interact with the monkeys or keep your distance... More

Interesting to see the monkeys in their natural habitat and being very mischievous with the bananas that the guests bought. Monkeys are generally not aggressive if u don't have food with u.

Even if there were no monkeys, this forest is beautiful. I enjoyed the whole environment. The monkeys are a treat and entertaining. Make sure you do not have food, and hide your water bottle in a zipped up bag, and you wont be harassed by the monkeys and you will enjoy them more. I visited as soon as it opened... More

We didn't spend much time here but it was one of my favorite activities from our time in Bali. The monkeys can be jerks but they are super cool to watch and ubud did a great job making the forest beautiful. Be sure and walk all around!

I absolutely love monkeys, so this was an amazing experience. But if you are scared, you should avoid this place. The monkeys are not shy at all and will jump on you, if you are holding food. I did witness some "situations" (a monkey being on the shoulder of a tourist not being able to hold is bladder), so be... More

This place is really fun and makes excellent use of the natural spaces. It is an enchanting forest with a few hidden surprises. The monkeys were playful but don't try to hide things under your shirt- THEY KNOW! :) Definitely don't skip this attraction in the area!

Lots of fun with cheeky monkeys. Will do it again, next time we are in Ubud, which is Aug 2017. It's a constant source of pleasure, being able to see these beautiful creatures.

If you love animals, this is a must visit! The monkeys are not aggressive unless you provoke, trick or bother them. The forest itself is SO beautiful. The staff that work there are very friendly and happy to answer questions! You can buy a bunch of bananas for 50 000 to give to the monkeys. Hide the bananas right when... More
