Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary

In this unusual place of worship, mischievous simians throng among sacred temples and lush greenery.

Reviewed By Peter M - Hong Kong, China

The forest and its key inhabitants are well maintained and well fed. The monkeys are playful and can be seen wandering around the local area as well, as they have become used to us humans. Being a major tourist attraction there is a bit of crowding and lots of people taking selfies. I was more inclined to sit and reflect and watch the various interactions between haman and primate and consider who was entertaining who??

Reviewed By Catherine T - Les Pavillons Sous Bois, France

And unjustifiably so....
The home of 1000 masks and 4000 puppets of different origins that are perfectly kept is astounding and well worth a visit. The Gardens surrounding the Houses are a treat to the eyes.
I urge you to make the detour for a visit when in Bali.

This was my favorite Bali experience! It was my 5th time to visit Ubud, and I'd never thought to do a biking tour! I sure am glad that I took the chance, and got away from the hustle and bustle of city life, and slowed down for a morning of slow riding along the roads and Neighborhoods surrounding Ubud. To feel the fresh morning air, to smell the fires and breakfasts cooking, to hear children's' laughter, and see authentic Balinese residents beginning their day, was to experience the REAL Bali!
Small groups (mine was 4 riders plus our great guide) was the reason I chose Bali 2000 over others. When I heard about the experience of others on another tour, I knew mine was better! It is locally owned, the bikes well maintained, and I was picked up right on time at my hotel and driven a few minutes to the company's owner's home where the equipment and crew were waiting.
On my tour, there was myself (62), and a father (40) and his two kids (10 and 17). We had a great time stopping at a local school to go inside, a temple, rice fields, and even a local swimming hole for a cool off dip! Any time we wanted to take a photo or ask questions or explore a site, our guide enthusiastically encouraged us. He was aware of fatigue, so kept a good pace and had plenty of water. (I also brought a protein bar)
On the way back, I felt my age... and a little worn out. I didn't want to slow down the group. When I mentioned it to our guide, he asked, "Do you want to ride in the car?"
Sure enough, there had been a car trailing us the whole three hours, driving on the road when we rode on narrow paths around rice fields, and keeping a good distance at other times, so that we had not even noticed it! With humble gratitude, I let them quickly take the wheel off my bike and store it in the back of the air conditioned SUV. I rode back, having a great conversation with the driver, yet still stopping and getting out to join my fellow cyclists when they stopped for a photo or other item of interest.
Listening to other tourists talk about their biking your experiences, I know I joined the BEST CYCLING TOUR in Ubud! Bali 2000 may be small and not as well advertised, but this is the real deal! Professional locals showing you the place they love... the place they call home. DO IT!

What a magnificent place. We went yesterday and my partner proposed to me having lunch over the private eating overlooking the rice field.
The food was amazing, the setting was beautiful and was one of the most beautiful places to visit.
The pork ribs we had Australian and local and they were Devine.
A must do in Ubud.

This was more than just a cycling tour, but a wonderful experience with local guide Mus who not only takes you on out of the way farm/jungle/rice field cycling treks, but also welcomes you into his family home and gives fantastic insight into local culture. The tour ends with a delicious Balinese home cooked meal. I would highly recommend this tour for the real Bali experience with a genuinely lovely local guide. I’m not an experienced cyclist however I found this easy as it was mostly downhill.

Kemenuh Butterfly Park

Reviewed By fajar a

This theme park has various butterfly in their collection. This park is best for educate kids with basic biology lesson. Although I'm not a lepidopterist, their "big" butterfly collection is Instagramable and I can learn new things here. Pro tips: buy ticket from online provider (ie fave or Traveloka). E-ticket is cheaper than go-show ticket.
