China is well prepared as usual, big difference when compared to India's venues and how India is about to host its commonwealth games.

First of all, it is 'Chinese workers'. There are female workers as well.

Well, I don't have the data of the whole workforce. But the number would be smaller than expected since most venues were completed years ago for other purposes (national games, national university games etc). Only 8 venues (out of 83 venues, of which 53 are competing venues, 17 are training venues and 13 are back-up venues) are newly built, besides the ceremony venue and Asian Games Town. Anyway, even the number is small by Chinese standard, I believe it would still be huge. Just imagine the total number of volunteers is over 1 million now.

There is one example which is the Guangzhou Chess Institute. The construction company in charge of this project was reported to have deployed 500-600 workers on the 10,000 m^2 site. It is a small venue, but that might give you some idea of the whole picture.

well, Guangzhou media seem quite conservative. I saw a report today saying that 'quite some Asian Games venues are first rate in China, and some are even first rate in Asia'.

China is always humble int this regard. Even though the facilities are indeed "world class" they still would not blast it out as such and certainly would not compare them with another country who did well in the past or recently.

it is part of the Chinese culture and philosophy. kids are taught to be modest or humble if you will. 'proud' is easily taken as 'cocky'. So people should not take the words when a Chinese say 'No, No, I am far from that good', actually he/she is waiting for you to say, "But you are indeed very good"

I think China should stick to holding regional events like these. Its good to see these games come along without any negative reports unlike Beijing 2008. I really like guangzhou mainly because of its good food and its interesting history, and also its skyscrapers

Sorry but I have to disagree with you on this. Negative reports are and will always be there regardless of China hosting a global event or not. All in all, Beijing 2008 was a huge success. But no matter how great it was, there are still haters with ill mentality or agendas. So why should China shy away from the world stage because of some comments from Sinophobes? That doesn't make sense to me at all. You need to cope with them during the promotion, but they don't mean anything and you don't really have to care about them. On one hand, facts speak louder than words. On the other hand, China needs to learn how to deal with negative reaction, and improves its promotion skills.

If anything, China needs more big events than ever. Games and expositions are great for it to promote itself as well as speed up the infrastructure construction--faster than the already rapid improvement. Beijing had its city infrastructure updated because of OG, Shanghai got the world's longest metro network sooner than expected because of EXPO, now Guangzhou is benefiting from the Asiad, and Shenzhen is also speeding up its subway construction for Universiade next year. It makes me think that cities like Tianjin and Chongqing also need some big events to push the urban development.
