Earth : Asia : East Asia : Taiwan : Northern Taiwan : New Taipei : Bali District
Bali is a district in New Taipei, Taiwan.
It is the newest tourist place in Taipei.
One easy way to get to Bali is via bus. From MRT Guandu station, take bus R13 or R22 (For Bali Ferry Pier and Formosa Fun Coast only), the bus ride takes about 20~30 minutes.
This is very popular among local people. The ferry comes from Tamsui, on the other side of the Danshui river, and arrives at Bali's Ferry Pier, as well as several piers along Bali Left Bank Park. Note that on weekends and holidays, you may have to wait for as more as an hour before being able to get aboard, while the ride only lasts for a few minutes.
The best method to move in Bali is renting a bicycle. There are several places to get one near the pier where boats from Danshui arrive, and rental is inexpensive. Many of local attractions are located within a couple of kilometers from the boat pier and bike makes them all quickly accessible.
A walking trail is built along Danshui river. It is possible to walk to most attractions in Bali area while enjoying the view of waterfront. But of course it takes some time and energy.
Fancy cafes and restaurants can be found near Bali Left Bank Park. There are also food stands available at Bali Ferry Pier for fans of Taiwanese snacks. However, many of them are closed on weekdays, as most visitors come on weekends.
Bali is often visited along with the nearby town of Tamsui.
