Yizhou is an ancient city with a history dating back 2,100 years. It is famous for being the birthplace of Liu Sanjie, a renowned folk singer in ancient China whose works were included in the 2006 collection of national intangible cultural heritages. It is also home to scenic spots such as Huaiyuan ancient town and Huixian Mountain

The diverse range of ethnic groups which live in Yizhou, such as Yao, Miao and Mulam, means that the district is immersed in culture.

The State Council upgraded Yizhou from a county-leveled city into a district in 2016, and relocated the city government to the district, providing Yizhou with a greater opportunity to develop its local economy.
