Welcome back my Steemian friends to another Episode of TimTravels!
As promised I will travel more in the next weeks. After I succesesfully passed my last exam I booked my next flights! On some destinations I will travel alone, on others my girlfriend will join me and in other locations, I might meet some Steemians!
So far the next known destinations are Singapore, Malaysia, Italy and perhaps Japan! (If you have any recommandations or want to meet me let me know)
Not only do I want to share my photographs with you but I also want to give you a better insight on the places I visited. Therefor I came up with the idea to write travel reviews. In todays post we will have a look at the famous Monkey Forest of Ubud and learn more about this touristical attraction.
1) Where to find the Monkey forest!
Jalan Monkey Forest
Bali 80571, Indonesia
2) Only 3,46$ Entrance? Let's go!
Children : IDR. 40.000
At the time of writing 1 IDR are approximatly 0,000069 US-Dollar, so 50.000 IDR are 3,46 US-Dollar.
3) Never ever break one of the following rules, please.
Never watch directly in the eyes of the monkeys. It might make them feel threatened and react aggressinly
Do not carry open bags or loose items with you. The monkeys are very smart and will try to grab your bag in the hope to find some food inside. Also, it quite often happens that they catch your phone or your sunglasses and will want to exchange them for some food! No kidding, they do it
Never touch one of their infants. The monkeys will think you want to harm their babies and protect them heavily. So keep a safe distance and never get too close to them
Under no circumstances feed the wild animals with food you brought. They have a special diet and giving them your food might cause damage to them and even end up in their death. If you want to feed the monkeys you can buy some bananas which are sold in the forest
4) Monkeys, love my camera
Some pictures I took of the monkeys:
5) What views you can expect
Here are some shots of the forest itself. You will notice the incredible amount of green you can see. High trees, tropical bushes, vines and flowers cover all the forest. The perfect home for the monkeys!
If you are in Bali or plan to visit the island I highly do recommend you to visit the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary. Never before did I get so close to wild monkeys and could watch them in their natural habitat. Make you sure to have a vaccination against rabies in case you get bitten or hurt by one of the monkeys. However, it spoke to many locals and the guides of the park and they explained that an attack by the monkeys rarely happens. As long as you follow the behavior rules the monkey will remain peacefully and you will have a great time in Ubud.
In August Expolrio, the world's first decentralized travel reviews platform will launch their demo and I am preparing reviews which will be then posted on Steemit and Explorio. I wrote this post so I already can excersive how to write reviews. For more check out Explorio.com!
