Visiting the Monkey Forest, or Watch a Monkey Climb on Calvin's Head

One of the highlights of our honeymoon was a trip (two, actually, because it was that much fun) to the Monkey Forest in Ubud, Bali. For 1,500 rupiahs (about $1.60 or s0), you can enter the park. Another 2,000-3,000 rupiahs will get you a bunch of 15-20 bananas to feed the monkeys.

And that's where the fun begins.


We got caught in a rainstorm, and took shelter right outside of this temple.

Waiting for the rain to let up.


Snack time!

As we were leaving, we noticed a mother feeding her baby, so we had to stop and take some pictures.



If you ever find yourself in Bali, I highly recommend a trip to the Sacred Monkey Forest.
