Ubud Monkey Forest

Before we came to Asia, we thought monkeys are cute, playful and friendly. We quickly changed our mind when we met the first monkey in the wild. Ubud Monkey Forest was a heaven for monkeys but not for us.

Monkeys are probably the most mean and spiteful animals in Asia.

That is why we didn’t really want to visit the Ubud Monkey Forest. But since it’s one of the most popular tourist attraction in Bali, we decided to give it a try.

Was it worth it? We are not sure. It’s just a nice temple area with MANY monkeys, that can be dangerous sometimes.

If you want to see monkeys in wild, this is a place for you.

Best tips for Ubud Monkey Forest

1. Be careful.

These monkeys can be really dangerous. They can bite or steal something from you.

Before you get to the Sanctuary, read carefully security precautions.

Especially focus on what you should and shouldn’t bring inside.

For example, monkeys love plastic bags. When they see them, they will do anything to get it, even if it hurt you. We saw them jumping on one’s guy backpack and it was quite scary.

2. Don’t feed the monkeys.

It is forbidden inside the Sanctuary. However you will be offered to buy some monkey food from the random sellers.

Don’t buy it, unless you want to be chased by dozens of monkeys who will try to get it.
