These uncaged, long-tailed macaques are entertaining and impudent. Guard your valuables. At dusk, wait outside the park and watch the monkeys as they take to the streets of Ubud.

Tampak Siring Village (14 kilometers northeast of Ubud)

Observe Hindu worshippers as they enter the koi-filled rectangular pool to purify themselves beneath holy fountains.
