Everything You Need To Know About Ubud Monkey Forest

No matter the holiday location, there will always be one or two ‘must see’ attractions, some of which are natural, and some are man-made. Examples include Niagara Falls in Canada, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Ayres Rock in Australia’s Northern Territory, and for Bali news, we are certain that the Monkey Forest in Ubud should take its rightful place as a location every tourist should visit when on holiday there.

Now we accept that this is not the only location in the world where you see monkeys as no doubt every zoo, and possibly The Rock of Gibraltar will attest to, but it is certainly one where monkeys can be seen thriving in their natural habitat. That habitat is specifically the Ubud Forest which covers an area of just under 31 acres. To give you a comparison, that is the equivalent of around 18 soccer fields.

At that size, it is large enough to accommodate the monkeys, and give tourists the opportunity to walk around the forest with it not becoming too excessive a distance. In fact, even at a slow walking pace, you should be able to complete the entire walk around in about 2 hours.

One other advantage for the tourists of the forest, is that the large amount of foliage overhead which consists of the leaves of the trees, provides a natural canopy that keeps most of the forest in the shade. This also keeps it cool and protects everyone from the dangers that long periods of exposure to sunlight can create.
