My 7yr old loved it!

We hired a local driver to take us from Nusa Dua to Ubud (approx an hour and a half trip) and it was worth the visit. The cost of entry is cheap and it is easy to simply buy a... read more

Worth a stroll through the forest. The monkeys are cute but if you buy bananas to give them make sure you're not teasing them as they get aggressive. Also just make sure bags and sunnies aren't on top of your head. I had no problems but other people did.

I loved this experience. The monkeys are everywhere so be careful not to have things hanging off your clothes or out of your pockets as they will steal it!!! 😂🐒 You will get to see lots of different sized monkeys including little babies hanging onto their mums! The drive up from seminyak with traffic is awful, just don't be in... More

Lots of monkeys to see. A great walk through the forest. It's worth paying for a banana to get some photos with the monkeys on you but you have to stay very calm and be prepared to get a little dirty. Don't bring sunglasses. I wouldn't bring a bag if I were you and hold on to your camera.

it is a very nice natural place, with a 50.000 pp per person entry and that is a good price and you can spend minimum 2 hours there and you will enjoy it Monkeys there are friendly ( kind of ) but only they will try to take any water bottle from you :)

We were just near the sanctuary entrance when we came across a charming little monkey which was being treated to some fruit by another tourist. When I offered some to the monkey, it suddenly bared its teeth and attacked. I narrowly escaped serious injury. This incident made us very nervous during our visit although we saw other visitors who allied... More

This the best monkey forest in Bali I think it a nice place but I didn't enjoy a lot because I don't like monkeys a lot but if you like monkeys you will enjoy them too much and also you will enjoy the green areas around you and trees 👍🏻😊

This was enjoyable despite the constant presence of the monkeys who grabbed my daughters ankle and made us feel quite uneasy most of the visit . The forest and temples were good to see and the monkeys were cute from a distance.

Nervous at first but turned into enjoyable experience. Didn't buy bananas knowing I couldn't handle them jumping on me. More fun watching others tackle the monkeys. Had my backpack they had no interest as I had no food. Bit scary watching parents let them climb on kids because they scream and don't let go of the bananas so the kids... More
