Are there many vegetarians in Taiwan?

Taiwan healthy food

Surprisingly, there are vegetarian restaurants all over the city in Taiwan.

I got the impression that people who are health-conscious, especially vegetarians, often go to the restaurants.

Vegetarian restaurants often have green signs, so they are easy to find.

We don’t eat a lot of raw vegetables in Taiwan, so having such a restaurant is a great help for modern people who are lacking in vegetables.

Finally, I would like to make a health suggestion for those living in Kaohsiung.

Many restaurants have vegetables as side dishes, so you can add one to your meal to keep yourself healthy.

Also, since there are many gyms in the city, it is a good idea to continue exercising at least once a week.

If you don’t have a gym nearby, just walking in the park will be enough exercise for you.

Just make sure you get enough sleep, and live a regular, healthy life!
