Spread of Daoism

Daoism (often also called Taoism), like Buddhism, is not a theistic religion, but rather a teaching. As a Chinese philosophy and worldview, Daoism is nevertheless considered a religion.

Daoism has its largest followers in China, where it also originated about 2500 years ago. Further spreading areas are the adjoining and historically with China related countries. Through emigration, Daoism also spread to other countries such as Singapore and Malaysia.
