Monekys of Bali

in #travel3 years ago


This photo is from the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary in Ubud. It's a well known tourist spot. Vendors sell food openly to visitors. The monkeys in turn have learned to expect food from humans and will quickly grab things like bananas if they see it but don't appear to have much interest in humans otherwise.


At Uluwatu temple, on the southern tip of the island in Badung, there are also plenty of monkeys. Feeding them is strictly prohibited though and the monkeys react very different to humans. While they don't expect food they are curious about items humans carry. It's common for them to snatch things like sunglasses or toys, basically anything they can. They will then scurry off and examine the item, bending and hitting it until it breaks or they lose interest. Besides the monkeys the Hindu temples are beautiful as well and there are spectacular views off the cliff-side and down to ocean below.


nice post

That first photo of the monkeys is so cute. I've been to Bali several times but never to the Monkey forest, the first time I stayed in Ubud was right opposite the Monkey forest and the monkeys came to our hotel to steal our food and things, they looked quite aggressive to say the least so I decided nor to see the Monkey forest.
Uluwatu is really beautiful but so full of tourists most of the time, it's difficult to enjoy it

Monkeys are great so it's hard for me to resist checking them out if they are around, but yes, the ones at the Monkey Forest are the most aggressive I've ever seen too. It's also the only place I've ever seen that encourages you to feed them. I think it's related.
