Postcard from... Ubud Monkey Forest

I was in Bali, Indonesia in 2009, and my favourite place in the island was not the famous beaches - rather it was Ubud, a small town in the middle of the island (well, not really in the middle, but it was a town with no beaches in sight). One of the places to visit is the Ubud Monkey Forest. The area lived up to its name - it was a forest full of monkeys!

There were times when I stood motionless due to the monkeys all around me - no, not in awe but rather in fear. But when I was sure that they would not bother me and were doing their own activities, I enjoyed watching them - caring for their babies, diving into a small little pond, eating nuts and bananas, "grooming" another monkey and even drinking from a water bottle!

Keep monkeying!

  1. I swear we saw this same monkey in Bali a couple weeks ago! Haha. We haven't posted about our time in Bali yet on the blog, but I have a couple photos in my FB album.

    I totally agree with you.. they were small but intimidating! I tried to keep my distance.
