Where do you think is the most-visit place for travelers in Taiwan? The answer is probably 7-11 instead of the tourist spots.

The statistic shows that Taiwan has more than 10,000 convenience stores. There are 0.31 convenience stores in one square kilometer, just second to South Korea.

Since the first 7-11 opened in 1979 in Taiwan, the convenience store culture has totally changed life in Taiwan. You can still find food at midnight when other stores, restaurants, and night markets are closed. You can recharge your energy immediately after working out. If you are too busy working, you can grab something randomly then keep on working in your office.
