The Sangeh Monkey Forest and Monkey Forest Ubud have only recently welcomed tourists into their respective locations, and both operators have voiced their compliance to health protocols.

“There are special health protocols in place at these tourist destinations. One of it is to maintain a distance with the monkeys, and visitors are provided with a guideline on how to do so,” shared Putu Astawa as Head of the Bali Tourism Agency.

The standard Covid-19 health protocols also apply including mandatory face masks, social distancing, and regularly disinfecting one’s hands.
