The monkeys have seen it all, as they lazy around posing for the camera. The young ones are particularly cute and incite a frenzy of cameras. Still glad we went, and so will you be.

The monkey forest is a fun place to have been and tick off your list, but in my opinion it was very crowded, and not that spectacular. Be careful of the monkeys. I saw a girl accidentally step on a monkeys tail and she got bitten hard by it.

It is an arduous walk down the hill but worth it. So many monkeys, you can not believe it. You can feed them but beware they will be all over you. There is a minimal admission charge. The statuary give a great back drop to the monkeys. Not the cleanest place in town but it is home to many, many... More

All the temples are beautiful and remember to bring with you a "sarong" to cover your legs. A lot of monkeys around. Just be careful with your staff and enjoy this interaction with them.

I am generally not afraid of animals but the monkeys are a bit unpredictable. The walk is very nice but the as soon as you sit to have a rest they start to be interested in you. One jumped on my husband's shoulder which was great until it wanted to steal his dioptrical sunglasses. As he didn't want the monkey... More

There were lots of cute monkeys which keep you entertained for a while with their antics. But not so cute after they took our bottled water away.
