Ubud Tourism & Travel Guide

Again a very scenic day as I proceeded to the Marine Park and had a view of the exotic Marine Life and the stuff they have made over there. Now I had plans to move towards Ubud, Ubud is like a foreigner buddy to Munnar. But has some distinctiveness and a bit of difference than Munnar. Its not true to compare any two destinations as each one has their own flavor and essence to offer. I started quickly with the Monkey Forest, Saraswati Temple, Ubud Palace, Campuhan Walk and did not went much but loved the greens all around and ended with the Owlhouse art. I spent a really good time here but also I felt I missed alot due to too many things I added onto one day at Ubud, but this place deserves a good 2 or 1 Night stay to enjoy its essence.
Best time to visit Ubud is from June to September

Jalan Monkey Forest, Padangtegal, Ubud 80571
Imagine a 'secret jungle' with inquisitive monkeys who rule over sacred temples and century old banyan trees. Sit quietly and hear the sounds of rushing ravines.....drift a little.....see and smell the vivid colour of flower offerings and sweet Balinese incense. This isn't Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Lost World," it's the Ubud Sacred Monkey Forest, a must-see attraction for any visitor to Bali, 'Island of the Gods.'While staying at the spectacular eco-conscious Fivelements Puri Ahimsa wellness retreat, I ventured out to one of Bali's most popular attractions, the Ubud Sacred Monkey Forest. Officially known as the Padangtegal Mandala Wisata Wanara Wana Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, the site contains 27 acres of protected grounds, 605 long-tailed macaque monkeys, and three 14th-century temples.The forest is located minutes from the main strip of Ubud, the 'Cultural Heart of Bali.' You can purchase bananas on-site to feed the monkeys, make sure to carefully conceal the fruit in a backpack because the monkeys will at random, jump on to you for a free meal. This is all apart of the fun. When you are ready to feed them, take one banana out at a time, this will prevent any accidental bites. I have read many reviews about aggressive behavior from the monkeys, I did witness it for myself, but was never bitten. Most aggression cases have happened because of improper feeding; if you take one banana out at a time, watch your surroundings, and do not taunt the monkeys (especially the mature ones!) this will help to ensure a safe and highly enjoyable interaction. Also note, if you have no bananas, food, or hand-held items the monkeys will typically be unfazed by your presence, allowing visitors who want a little distance to have a great time too. I give this attraction a 10/10, it's literally a 'barrel of monkeys' fun!
