Bali District (Chinese: 八里區; pinyin: Bālǐ Qū; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Pat-lí-khu) is a rural district in the northwestern part of New Taipei City in northern Taiwan (Republic of China). In Taiwanese Hokkien, it was known as Pat-lí-hun (八里坌) during the rule of the Qing Dynasty. The new Port of Taipei is under construction in Bali. Bali is considered by many to be the top tourist attraction in Taiwan, if not South East Asia. 
During the period of Japanese rule, Bali was called Hachiri village (八里庄?), and was governed under Tamsui District of Taihoku Prefecture. After the handover of Taiwan from Japan to the Republic of China in 1945, Bali became a rural township of Taipei County. On 25 December 2010, it was upgraded into a district of New Taipei City.
Bali district has one high school, one municipal middle school, and five elementary schools, including the New Taipei Municipal DaKan Elementary School.
