Today we are sharing our favorite photos from the Monkey Forest in Ubud Bali!
Visiting the Monkey Forest was one of the highlights of our trip to Bali. There is just something so cute, slightly scary but fun about Monkeys. You never know what they are going to do and that can be interesting. We did not have any problems with the monkeys during our visit. We made sure we did not have any food or water bottles on us when we entered the temple.
The monkeys can smell food even in your purse or bag and will try to get to it. We saw a couple of monkeys steal water bottles from tourists that were walking through. They have also been known to steal sunglasses or other items in hopes you will pay them back with bananas.
We only saw one monkey get aggressive with a tourist but it was due to the tourist taunting the monkey with a banana. He was holding it out to the monkey and then snatching it away as soon as the monkey reached for it. As you can imagine the monkey did not enjoy this and bared his teeth at the tourist. He did not do anything to the tourist but definitely made it known he was not happy to be messed with.
The majority of the monkeys just hung out together and wandered around the temple. You do want to make sure you know where you are stepping since they are everywhere.
We hope you enjoy our favorite photos from the Monkey Forest in Ubud Bali. If you are in the area this is definetly one of the spots we suggest visiting. You can easily spend a few minutes to a couple of hours taking pictures and walking around with the monkeys.
