    1.King of the swingers A Treetop Adventure (Tabanan)

    What’s the best thing for your little monkeys? A good ol’ swing through the trees! Bali is home to some of the most spectacular forests and jungles in the world fact.Now you can enjoy the view from a whole new angle. After walking under the sea, now you can walk high in the trees thanks to this exhilarating treetop adventure.With a choice of 7 circuits of varying difficulties you can decide where you want to start, and perfect your skills with a choice of 72 obstacles.Starting at just 2 metres up, you can get a feel for heights, before advancing to the more nerve-wrecking levels, up to 20 metres! You will always be attached to a safety wire, but we think that even you might hesitate on some of the challenges (we did!) – while the kids put you to shame. Just watch them scamper from tree to tree without a second thought.For a grand finale, the stunning scenery will literally fly by as you whizz along the 160m zipline back down to earth.The whole family will be exhausted after a day of adrenaline-filled activities, so it will be an early night for everyone.

    2.Living, loving and learning Pondok Pekak Library

    Most kids probably don’t appreciate ‘a trip to the library’ or ‘a trip to an art gallery’, but they will definitely love the Pondok Pekak Library.Whether you want to learn how to make traditional Balinese offerings, carve fruit, play the gamelan or dance your heart out – this is a library with a difference.Of course, it has a fantastic display of books if reading is your thing, but wouldn’t you rather learn how to make some beautiful jewellery or a lovely wooden mask? The children can make something special to take home and show their friends – although we aren’t sure how long a carved watermelon would last in a suitcase! The fantastic teachers at Pondok Pekak Library go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome, while offering a fantastically authentic Balinese experience that you just can’t replicate anywhere else.Learning really can be fun, for kids and adults alike. Plus you will sound super smug at the school gates when you tell the other parents that your children loved visiting the library and art galleries during your amazing holiday at Bali!

    6.Monkey Madness Monkey Forest (Ubud)

    Now if you think that your cheeky little monkeys are a handful, just wait until you see these critters.This will be the highlight of your family holiday, and at only $2 each, it’s definitely a great bargain. With over 600 Balinese long tailed macaques in the forest, that is a lot of monkey for your money.Before the children spend all their pocket money on monkey treats, we must offer a few words of warning; if you leave any food in your backpack or pockets, the monkeys will sniff it out and can get a little scary.The most entertaining/terrifying part of your visit will be watching greedy monkeys jumping on people who have smuggled in some food.Remember that monkeys are wild animals, and while all the monkeys in Monkey forest are frequently screened for diseases such as rabies, a bite can ruin your holiday and this incredible experience.Enjoy watching the monkeys from a safe distance and make sure to remind the children about the dangers of wild animals.If you are really keen to feed the monkeys, then you can buy bananas at the forest entrance –  just dont say that we didn’t warn you!In Bali, monkeys have considerable cultural significance, and in Balinese Hinduism they are thought to embody both positive and negative forces. As such, the Balinese both love and hate them. In any event, these monkeys are well-loved and protected.If you want to extend the monkey madness, consider a stay at the quaint Looking Glass House in Ubud. The monkeys just love to visit, and you will have endless entertainment watching them frolic around just outside your window.
