While in Bali you must visit the monkey temple in Uluwatu. You get an awesome view from the high cliffs where the temple sits and the temple itself is beautiful.

However, the real tourist attraction are the crazy evil monkeys. They steal everything shiny from you including sun glasses, bracelets, etc. The funny thing about it is that there are people selling bananas everywhere, and once your belongings have been stolen, you'll need to trade the monkeys back for them using bananas! Ever traded with a monkey? Try it, it's fun although nerve wrecking at times :)

Price:
Very cheap and you won't need a guide at this location. Just beware of the monkeys

Opening Hours:
You should go there during the late afternoon in order to see the temple during daylight and then catch the tremendous view as the sun is going down.


How to get there:
Most imporantly, take a cab that you rent out for half a day or take an entire day and visit some other places.

Uluwatu is just about 45min from Nusa Dua, or 1 hr 15 minutes from Kuta as well as the Tuban area. If you are driving from Nusa

 
Snorkling or scuba diving
