The journalists showed their interest in topics such as the marketing operations of the Games, "odd-even" traffic restrictions and Torch Relay.
After the briefing, the media representatives visited the Asian Games Town Gymnasium, Athletes' Village, Main Media Centre as well as other venues in the 2.73km2 Asian Games Town.

The media representatives were very impressed by the post-Games use of the venues and their supporting facilities. After the 2010 Asian Games, the area will be transformed into a high-end residential community with a vacuum pipe waste collection system, solar powered heating and heat pumps, green transport systems, large shopping centres, schools and hospitals.
The visit was co-organised by the Taiwan Affairs Office of the People's Government of Guangdong Province and International Communication Office of the Guangdong Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China. The media delegation will also visit Huizhou, Dongguan and Zhongshan.
