Monkey Forest Ubud Bali

In Bali The Ubud Monkey Forest is a natural forest reserve popular with both locals and tourists. Inhabited by wild monkeys (don't even think about petting them) but tame enough to steal your bananas, handbags, toupes, etc., These mischievous monkeys provide lots of entertainment in their own habitat. Pleasantly laid out along two roads its smaller than the Sangeh Monkey Forest, with interesting meandering paths leading to charming bathing temple surrounded by lush remnants of dipterocarp forest.

Just off the main square is a lovely arched stone bridge leading to the forest's most alluring feature - the Hindu elephant-headed Lord Ganesh sitting comfortably overlooking a small, square, moss-covered pool where several Koi swim at his feet.
