Bali is located at New Taipei City's Bali District, on Duchuantou Street. Discovered from the study of archaeological ruins and relics, activity at Bali has taken place in this area since prehistoric times, and possesses a deep relationship with South Island culture. It is red soil sloped land formed from the lava flow of Guanyinshan, which was in turn formed due to a volcanic eruption. The land features a coastal alluvial plain thats around one kilometer wide and five kilometers long. Culture from nearly 7000 years ago can be traced from here, leading Taiwan into the neolithic age. Guanyinshan is an andesite volcano, and is Taiwan's youngest volcano. The area's andesite-type crystal minerals are mainly magnesium minerals, such as olivine, common pyroxene, hornblende, and black mica. 
Bali District originally was the first developed trading port located along the mouth of the Tamsui River. However, it later declined due to the cumulation of silt at the port. During the Chongzhen reign of the Ming Dynasty, the Spanish followed the Tamsui River and entered into the Taipei Basin, in the process subduing the three major tribes of the area. In the past, Bali was also called "Bali Kushe", or "Baliben". In the early days, there were 15 early aborigine settlements and 5 important archaeological ruins, including Xiagu Dabu Village, Changdao Kengkou Village, Duchuantou Village, Shihsanhang Village, and more.
