Dali District (Chinese: 大里區; pinyin: Dàlǐ Qū) is an inner city district in Taichung, Taiwan.

Name[edit]

The name "Dali" originates from Tai-li-khit (Chinese: 大里杙; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Tāi-lí-khi̍t), where Tai-li refers to the Hoanya aborigines and khit refers to a bamboo raft's toon.

History[edit]

Dali used to be a county-controlled city of Taichung County from 1 November 1993 until 25 December 2010, when it became a district.
