Ubud Monkey Forest
This forest sanctuary is rather secluded and beautiful. Thick, green foliage seems to fill up the space. Added to that is a well-paved walking path throughout this expansive forest, making your evening stroll a real breezy affair.
The Ubud Monkey forest is a small nature preserve on the southern outskirts of Ubud. Along with its lush surroundings and a beautiful temple are hundreds of monkeys -- Balinese macaques, to be more specific.
So, do they bite? Not at all. As long as you stay cautious, they will rarely be bothered by you. There are street vendors trying to sell you bananas to feed them, but if you are not comfortable doing it, please politely decline. According to Agung, the monkeys here are probably less aggressive than the legendary ones in Uluwatu.
It's amazing how close you can get too the monkeys -- just don't try to pet them! But... They get a lil cheeky sumtimes too...
