If you are planning your first trip to Bali, Indonesia, then a trip to Ubud Monkey Forrest is kind of a must! Ubud Monkey Forest, also known as the Sacred Monkey Forest of Padangtegal, is one of Ubud’s most popular attractions. A natural forest sanctuary that is home to a large horde of grey long-tailed macaques. I visited this sanctuary during my trip to Bali last year. Due to some nastiness at the end of my holiday, I kind of forgot to write a couple of blog posts, including this one. So in this blog post, I will take you along with me to the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary. I will show you the best way to get there, what it costs, what to do and what not to do when wandering around this amazing jungle whilst being surrounded by cheeky monkeys.

INCREDIBLE INDIA | A ROAD-TRIP IN THE SOUTHERN STATES

It has been a few years since I lived in India (I did an internship at a 5-star hotel in Mahabalipuram, you can read what it was like here) My parents and sister came to visit me whilst I was there and we did an amazing road trip through Kerala and Tamil Nadu. I, unfortunately, lost all my pictures when my computer crashed so I did not have any pictures of this trip. Luckily my dad has backups of everything and he still had tons of amazing pictures from this road trip. In this post, I will show you some of the highlights of incredible India. I will show you lots of amazing pictures (My dad did an amazing job of capturing this unique country) and what it typically looks like. I might have put 1 or 2 pictures at the wrong city, don’t judge me on that, we had thousands of pictures and some got mixed up a bit (oopsies).
