Monkeys are great, they will leave you alone if you have no bag/food but it's fun to feed them bananas as they climb all over you but as long as you don't panic, run or scream they won't feel threatened and won't bite. I saw...More

We visited the Sacred Monkey Forest during our time in Bali as all of us are animal lovers. We really enjoyed seeing the monkeys running free and getting to be so close to them in their natural habitat. I did want to write this review...More

Monkeys! Monkeys! EVERYWHERE!!!! These lil' guys are bold and fearless!! If you are skittish, I don't recommend. Personally, I had a blast! (One of our crew was bitten by a monkey, so BEWARE and cautious!) Overall, I had a great time.

This is a must-go attraction in Ubud. I like the different layers of trees and the varieties of plant.

The monkeys are pretty full on. I would not wear hats, glasses or anything they can steal. I was eating an ice cream close to the forest, and they began chasing me. Wouldn't recommend eating next to the forest! lol. They love bananas and you...More

The monkeys were not a problem at all especially if you follow the suggestions. no need to bring your own banana or other type of fruits for monkey since its forbidden

Do not take children here. They run risk of being bitten and it is not a safe environment. Monkeys also will take your hat, sunglasses and shiny objects.

Hi Junesteves, The entrance fee is 50.000 Indonesian Rupiah for adults. For kids we think it is about 40.000 Indonesian Rupiah.
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!
