Monkey forest ubud Bali
The monkey forest can be a bit of a daunting trip after reading about people’s experiences, chased by monkeys robbed and some even bitten.
I’m pleased to tell you on our visit we experienced none of the above. You can explore the monkey forest and observe the monkeys in there natural habitat.
Monkey forest Ubud is a nature reserve and Hindu temple,. As you enter please pay attention to the rules . Don’t try and touch the monkeys, one jumped on Justin backpack but soon jumped off the key is to keep calm. Don’t bring any food with you they will definitely sniff it out. Make sure your pockets are secure and anything you don’t want to loose safely stored away. Don’t wear sunglasses on your head if you want to keep hold of them. Be aware if you are bitten or scratched by a monkey it can pose a risk towards rabies, and you should visit your nearest medical centre.
You can explore the beautiful buildings and walks along the river, The whole place is stunning with amazing cultural architecture. we were so lucky during our visit seeing lots of babies, some were feeding and playing they looked pretty tame, probably due to the amount of people that spend time here, Ubud monkey forest is visited by over 10,000 tourists a month.

GETTING AROUND BALI
Travelling around in Bali you have a couple of options. We recommend hiring a scooter you can hire them for between 55,000 IDR – 70,000IDR per day though if your having it for a longer period you might be able to negotiate a lower price.
If you are not confident on a scooter you can hire a driver for the day there all over the island and costs from 500,000IDR a day which is about £26.90
We also downloaded the GOJEK app which was a total lifesaver and cheep,for taxi.
