The are all over Uluwatu, you never know when they show up, they try to steal your belongins, usually their favourite snatch is sunglasses, dont try to touch them, their teeths are very impressive! It is a good idea to walk around with a guide, the guide always usa a stick to keep the monkeys in distance and they know this man for sure.
It was really suck! My fave silver spectacles broken here. It was the monkey. Well, i have been warned before though. But common, i think it is over, will be back to parking space. As soon as i walk down the stairs, a monkey jump up from my back to my shoulder. He rape me, by takin off my glasses, and just easily broke it down and eat it as it's nothing! Omigod! I can't believe myself, but it did. And the guard is too late. after all it is my last day in Bali. But it is really suck, i have to admit it.
For you then, never use your spectacles, until get back in the car!
It's easy to stray from the footpaths. Ladies, beware of monkeys! They can ambush you and rob you of your personal items. Glasses, pens, handphones etc. should be put away before any encounter with the monkeys. It's better to stay with your group.
when we enter the uluwatu area, there are so many monkeys around, just beware and take care of your belonging, don't wear sunglasses, cap. if not it will happend like this.
There are a fair bit of stairs at the Uluwatu temple, so be prepared to do some climbing up and down, but it is worth it for the beautiful architecture and dramatic view of the surroundings.
