The route passing the famous sacred sanctuary home of the
grey long-tailed macaques is what has been name “Monkey Forest Road”.
From where Monkey Forest Road starts, rows of shops, boutiques
and outlets throng its sides together with many guesthouses and hotels,
restaurants and small day spas. Only a short distance further down, the forest
sanctuary is located.
Along Ubud Monkey Forest Road, there are numerous amounts of
shops, some with clear signposts and some bearing only obscure objects and
curios from behind single-glass displays. Most are art shops with selections of
assorted handicrafts, antiques and alluring textiles from the authentic
Balinese culture and tradition.
Fashion, from men’s and women’s, to children’s wear can be
found here. Along with international brands such as Ralph Lauren and Billabong.
Location: Ubud Monkey Forest, Padangtegal Village, south of
the main Ubudcentre.
