Definitely do this. There are staff around to keep an eye on the monkeys. Costs IDR 50,000 for entry. Takes about 1hour maybe two. Don’t have your drink bottles out, saw a monkey grab it and open it and stole it. Beautiful place. Walk is...More

Interesting attraction full of monkeys and beautiful temples. Be aware of not disturbing monkeys. Relax and they come to you. Keep your belongings safe or they will catch and run away.

The monkey forest is a walk through a jungle forest where monkeys can roam free. Take note of the signage regarding monkeys or you could lose items - they are cheeky! There’s a lovely temple to visit as well.

This is worth stopping off to see. Follow the rules and you won’t have problems with the monkeys and they do provide plenty of entertainment as they go about the paths, temples and trees. The banyan trees are very spectacular and worthy of a mention...More

Good place full of lively monkeys, only 50k per person and can come and leave as you please on the same day. Mornings are best as the monkeys head out to the streets during the afternoon. Follow the signed rules and you'll be fine. Saw...More

Like the title says... I wouldn’t go out of my way to come here unless you love monkeys. Yeah they are all over but you basically walk past them and move on. The place was crowded and not much of a forest. I was underwhelmed...More

It’s exactly what it says, a place for monkeys to run free. The setting has a lot of traditional Balinese statues and the monkeys seem to be completely unphased by humans. Great for kids and adults. I even had a monkey hop on me for...More

The monkeys are the obvious call-card here and they are a lot of fun. There are a set of rules when you arrive, they are mostly commonsense, but it’s worth a read as a reminder that they are wild animals. Not to be missed is...More

There are many flat paths and trails and someramps next to stairs. That said, you won’t be able to see many parts of the Park. However, you could easily spend a very pleasant hour or two in the Park and see plenty of... More
