Bali Left Bank (八里左岸)
Located along the North Coast along the Tamsui River directly opposite of Tamsui Old Street, Bali Left Bank is a popular retreat for Taipei City residents looking for a relaxing afternoon away from the city. Primarily known as a bicycle path that connects Taipei City with the North Coast, several areas along the path are home to villages, shops, and restaurants.
The central area of Bali Is located nearby Bali Ferry Pier (八里渡船頭) connecting Bali with Tamsui across the river. Regular ferry service operates between the two locations, and service is consistent and affordable. Simply purchase a ticket or swipe an Easycard to travel across the river.
Rent a bicycle! Bike rentals are affordable, and shops are located along the entire length of the coast. Along with standard bicycles of all sizes, tandem and multi-seat bikes are also available for rental. Bicycle is the preferred method to explore Bali as attractions are slightly spread out and a well-maintained bicycle path connects the entire area.
Some of the attractions in Bali include the Waziwei Nature Conservation Area (挖仔尾自然保護區).
