26. Monkey Madness – Ubud Monkey Forest

Now if you think that your cheeky little monkeys are a handful, just wait until you see these critters.

This will be the highlight of your family holiday, and at only USD$2 per pax, it’s definitely a great bargain. With over 600 Balinese long tailed macaques in the forest, that is a lot of monkey for your money.

Before the children spend all their pocket money on monkey treats, we must offer a few words of warning; if you leave any food in your backpack or pockets, the monkeys will sniff it out and can get a little scary.

The most entertaining/terrifying part of your visit will be watching greedy monkeys jumping on people who have smuggled in some food.

Remember that monkeys are wild animals, and while all the monkeys in Monkey Forest are frequently screened for diseases such as rabies, a bite can ruin your holiday and this incredible experience.

Enjoy watching the monkeys from a safe distance and make sure to remind the children about the dangers of wild animals.

If you are really keen to feed the monkeys, then you can buy bananas at the forest entrance –  just dont say that we didn’t warn you!

In Bali, monkeys have considerable cultural significance, and in Balinese Hinduism, they are thought to embody both positive and negative forces. As such, the Balinese both love and hate them. In any event, these monkeys are well-loved and protected.

28. Go out to sea on glass-bottomed boats

Want to see the beautiful coral reefs, but afraid of getting wet?

No worries, you can definitely do so, and we promise, it doesn’t involve any aquarium visits. You just need to go out to sea in a glass-bottomed boat.

17

These boats are specially built with a pane of glass at the bottom that acts as a mask under the water, to allow even non-swimmers to experience the underwater scene, just like dry snorkeling.

As the boat glides over the reef, you’ll be able to see in detail the fish, corals and other marine life in their natural habitat. You can even take photos and feed the fish, all from the safety of the boat.

The best ride? Try Nusa Lembongan day tour, where the reefs are blooming!
