The Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary is a must-do in Ubud. It’s a lovely green forest with pathways, strewn with Balinese sculptures and lots of monkeys scurrying around. The monkeys are long-tailed macaques, for those in the know. They are everywhere and they are not shy about coming forward, especially if there’s fruit on offer.
Beware if you are carrying plastic bags. The little – and big (!) – mischief makers aren’t embarrassed about tearing apart your shopping bag to get at what they think are food parcels.
There is a small temple in the forest. Ladies, if you’re not appropriately dressed, they’ll rent you a sarong to tie around your waist.
