One of Bali's famous spots is the monkey forest in Ubud. The park is quite extensive and so beautiful on it's own; the monkeys are just an added bonus. Going in, I knew I didn't want to buy any bananas from the vendors. They are wild monkeys and go crazy over food, so I definitely didn't want to give them a reason to be climbing all over me. They may look sweet, but they have crazy fangs and hiss at you if you try to take a selfie with them (saw it happen). Hubby, though, is much more adventurous than I, and immediately snagged a bunch of nanners. At one point he handed them to me so that he could take a photo, and a monkey immediately tried to climb my body and steal the whole bunch. Hence the funny photo below. I literally screamed, and drew the attention of a park attendant who came up to me and said, "don't look them in the eyes." That is verbatim what he said, I kid you not ha! So if you are weak-hearted like me, either don't buy the bananas or get rid of them quick. But I still whole-heartedly recommend going, the monkeys are funny and the park is gorgeous.
