Mon­key-ing Around

HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

Seem­ingly a calm par­adise from the out­side, deep in Ubud you’ll find a cu­ri­ous bunch of furry long-tailed pri­mates in the 27-acre per­haps one of the best places in the world to get up close and per­sonal with the species. Here you’ll en­counter more than 350 mon­keys in their nat­u­ral habi­tat, un­de­terred by the tourists that crowd their home each day.

The In­di­ana Jones-like set­ting is worth see­ing in it­self, with tem­ple ru­ins that have been re­claimed by the for­est. And the mon­keys—well, they’re ev­ery­where: jump­ing through the branches, screech­ing loudly at their neigh­bors, rolling in the fallen leaves and clam­or­ing to grab any shiny ob­ject from un­sus­pect­ing tourists. These lit­tle crit­ters are sneaky and ag­ile, so make sure you hold on tight to your phone.
