THE SACRED MONKEY FOREST SANCTUARY IN UBUD | BALI, INDONESIA

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.

THE BEST OF UBUD, BALI | A COMPLETE TRAVEL GUIDE

Ubud is located in the central foothills of the Gianyar regency, on the island of Bali, Indonesia. Ubud was made into one of Bali’s most famous destinations when it appeared in the movie “Eat, Pray, Love’ with Julia Roberts.  It still encompasses what I envision authentic Indonesia should look like. Lush green rice fields, waving palm trees, friendly locals and cheap but delicious food. It was definitely one of my favorite stops during my May 2018 exploration of the tropical island. Ubud is known as the spiritual home of the island, but your local experience wouldn’t be complete without a wander around the rice fields, lunch at one of the many local coffee shops, an afternoon with some monkeys, or a visit to one of the many beautiful temples. It, therefore, makes for a perfect relaxing getaway and offers you a unique insight into Balinese living.
