Mixed feelings about the visit.. Entree fee is 50k per person, which is fine considering there are a LOT of monkeys! The monkeys will get a bit aggressive when you have food or drinks, they will spot it immediately.. don’t take any into the park...More

Walking around you encounter many monkeys of all ages and interaction interest! Park well maintained and monkeys seem happy and healthy. Worth a walk around if in Ubud.

If you want to see monkeys then this is place is for you. Very reasonably priced at just ~AUD$5 per person entry. Make no mistake you will be getting up close and personal with these semi-wild monkeys. You can buy bananas to feed the monkeys...More

A must visit place in Ubud, the jungle has the ancient architecture blended into it with A LOT OF MONKEYS! They are quite friendly as long as you have food and not looking them in the eye.

A beautiful place to wander and gorgeous scenery. You will always get idiots though bringing in bags of food and then freak out when the monkeys attack them 😔 read the advise before entering and you shouldn’t have a problem

The macaque sanctuary in central Ubud is quite peaceful in spite of the amount of visitors present. Most seem to heed the instructions of staying calm so as not to spook the monkeys (all 700+ or so). Plenty of photo opportunities of monkey play and...More

The Monkey Forest was part of our day tour. What an experience. Hundreds of monkeys just sauntering past you, minding their own business, sometimes pinching food and belongings from you. Good fun but beware.

A fantastic place to visit, we had a great time feeding the monkeys little bananas. Luckily we didn't have any issues with the monkeys trying to take anything from us and we didn't see anyone else have issues either but that might be because there...More

It’s 50,000 entry fee. For the food, you can ask the guides there to give you some corn and take your picture. There’s no need to buy bananas. In Central Ubud, other than the monkey forest, you can visit the Museum Puri... More

Hi Tony, I went there with my big Canon camera and I took a lot of pictures with no problem. The monkeys are just looking for bananas but they were not aggressive. Have a good time there.
