Religion

Taiwanese believe in burning tribute money to gods who bless them
In Taiwan, the main religions are Confucianism (which is generally considered more of a philosophy or belief system than a religion, although there are Confucian temples), Taoism and Buddhism. However, all people here can enjoy religious freedom and practice any of the major faiths. The Government Information Office website has a thorough explanation of the various religions practiced in Taiwan.
