Visited this sanctuary/Temple in the morning. Avoid coming later if possible due to crowds and heat. Avoid bringing bags and food. Keep backpacks on your front. The monkeys do jump on you and some can be troublesome. They will steal water bottles and anything they...More

This is one of the most touristic place in Ubud. So this is one of must visit places if you come to Ubud. Nice place to visit, and the entrance ticket is cheap. Be aware of the monkeys, they can be scary sometime.

I really liked this beautiful forest, it's is so nice, not only because of monkeys, but because of beautiful trees and surroundings. Monkeys are very cute! I enjoyed my time here.

Average place with just lots of monkeys all around trying to steal your bags, or just loitering around. A small waterfall inside was ok but again average. Very expensive entrance tickets just to see the monkeys! Good place for taking pics with them.

It was a very well maintained place for monkeys to live in. It's fun to watch them live in their natural habitat with little fear of humans. Suggest you don't carry any eatables, not even a bottle of water that the monkeys can see! Good...More

Lots of monkey groups within a large site in stunning scenery, a bit touristy in terms of the amount of people there and a lady selling bananas and taking photos, but if you walk away from the main temple areas it feels a bit more...More

I was looking forward to the monkey forest but, reflecting back on this morning's visit, it was a bit disappointing. Yes you see monkeys, but we had seen a lot already along Balinese countryside roads. Lots of tourists but most of them behaved well (although...More

I walked in right after a (feeding?) ceremony, so lots of food was still there to feed to the monkeys. I was a bit scared of them since I find them a bit unpredictable, but they left me alone :-)

hi, 50.000 rupia it means 7€ +-
Is it best to book a tour or just pay on the door? Has anyone been who stayed on Kuta? This is where we will be staying but unsure of the best way to get there, how much would a taxi be? Thanks!
