Ubud is one of those amazing places where you can walk and explore something new everyday. Whether it’s a new path through rice paddies, a great little restaurant with the most delicious papaya smoothie, or a monkey (who will try to steal your camera) you’re always guaranteed to run into something new.
When you’re in Ubud, it’s worth checking out the Monkey Forrest. Yes, it is super touristy, but how can you pass up an opportunity to hang out with a bunch of cute, little monkeys? When you go, you’ll see a lot of folks buying a bunches bananas. You can buy some as well, but there will be monkeys out and about no matter what, so it’s not necessary. There’s no time limit on how long you can stay in the monkey forrest, but you really only need an hour, so make sure to plan a few other things for the day, even if it’s just doing some yoga and hanging out reading a book.
