It's Time To Meet The Monkeys
After strolling the streets of Ubud (perhaps on a shopping spree), it's kind of amazing when you realize you're just a hop, skip and a jump from the Wild Side, with the Sacred Monkey Forest just at the edge of town. Buy bananas if you're brave, but be prepared to be jumped on if you do. The monkeys are friendly, but aren't afraid to climb you like a tree, especially if you've got food. Speaking of trees, the forest itself is pretty impressive, with 115 species of trees, some of them of spiritual importance to the Balinese.
