Sacred Monkey Forest


They sell bananas for you to feed the monkeys in Ubud’s Scared Monkey Forest, but truth be told, if you are carrying food you don’t make it too far from the front entrance before the monkeys have you surrounded.

The monkeys know what’s what.  If you are carrying yellow, better give it up.  Quickly. Or they will take it from you.



Signs warn visitors not to tease the monkeys, and to protect their belongings.  Turns out the monkeys are accomplished pickpockets.

And cute too.  After an hour of observing the these little thieves, we marveled at their human qualities.
