Attractions near Komaneka at Monkey Forest
Monkey around in the forest
As far as attractions names go, Monkey Forest couldn't be any better described. After paying a tiny entrance fee, you'll be free to wander through the lush rainforest to explore the different temples and watch or play with the large number of monkeys there.
At the entrance you can buy bananas to feed the animals but, if you're not careful, they'll grab the fruit from your hand before you know what's happened! The cheeky monkeys may also try to steal drinks, hats and glasses, so always be on alert. If you'd prefer to see the forest without the wildlife, head in before 8am when most of the monkeys will still be asleep.
Shop at Ikat Batik
Located a few minutes north of Komaneka on Monkey Forest Road, Ikat Batik looks like an unassuming store from the outside. Once you step inside, however, you’ll see why it's rated one of the best shops in Ubud.
Everything sold inside has been handspun, weaved and dyed by a local artist. Each item on display is a limited edition, meaning you'll get a pretty unique souvenir of your time in Bali. Ikat and Batik are both traditional methods of weaving and dyeing, so anything you buy here will have origins in local culture that date back many generations.
