Yiwu County was set up in 624 AD, Tang dynasty, and then lasted for about 1,300 years. Till in May 1988, the 1300 years old Yiwu County was upgraded to Yiwu City.
The long history left this city enough interesting stories and cultures like martial arts, Wu opera, and a 300-year-old Da An Si Pagoda in Xiuhu park.
Yiwu now has 716,000 local residents and over 1 million migrant workers, including around 40,000 foreigners from Korea, Mid-east, South America, and other parts of the world. The total population reaches 1.8 million.

Yiwu Restaurants, like its commodity wholesales, are rich in variety. Islamic restaurants, Korean restaurants, Indian restaurants, Brazilian restaurants, Japanese restaurants… all run by people from their own countries, not by Chinese.
