If you love monkeys, it's definitely a place for you. There's lots of them and they are so adorable. Just don't look monkeys in the eye, because I got punched by one of them :) and the entrance ticket is very cheap.

I really liked it. I'm not afraid of them and I did really nice photos. Don't bring food, shiny glasses/earrings etc don't touch them, and don't show your teeth as monkeys think is an agressive sign.

There aren't many places in the world with so many monkeys so willing clamber all over you for the sake of a banana. Fantastic experience, but don't tease them otherwise you may end up getting bitten and taken to the hospital for a Rabies shot!

No shortage of monkeys in this forest ~650, the walk takes you on a good path around the rain forest over the gauge and back again in a circle. Not challenging but also not ideal for push chairs or the like. Admission was only 50,000RP...More

This was an amazing experience, the monkeys will definitely climb on you if you have something they want and sometimes like myself they just wanted to sit on me. The forest they live in is beautiful, it wasn't too crowded we went on a Thursday....More

Nice walk around the forest not too big in the heart of ubud. The Dragon bridge is worth seeing. Lots of monkeys but plenty of staff on hand if they take a liking to you.

Definitely worth doing once, but the monkeys are crazy and unpredictable....not for the faint of heart

I think our experience was unusual. My friend was attacked by a monkey that tried to bite her neck. It ran at her for no identifiable reason and had huge jaws. Another monkey bit a woman on the leg as she was walking by it....More

No need but can be good idea since monkeys may bite and they might climb on your shoulders when you feed them. (it's safe if you don't panic)
