From the moment your Bali flight disembarks, the island's natural beauty and lush hinterland will be strikingly evident. One of the island's most popular attractions is the Sacred Monkey Forest of Padangtegal, located in Ubud. The nature reserve is also a sacred Hindu site and home to an ancient Hindu Temple. The monkeys that live around the temple are long-tailed macaques and are not afraid of humans. The best way to see the forest and to ensure the monkeys aren't too pesky is on a tour.
From little creatures to big, Bali has a number of Sumatran Elephants living in the island's protected safari parks. On an elephant safari you can get up close to these majestic animals, feed them and even take a ride through the jungle on the back of one.
