Although former US vice-president Dan Quayle only had two days for a vacation in Macau last week, he made sure he and his family enjoyed every moment of their lightning trip.

'He golfed, ate and then golfed some more,' said an employee at the resort where Mr Quayle's wife and two sons stayed.

Macau's dual reputation as a city of exciting entertainment and tranquil relaxation was fully realised by the Quayle family, as the sons - Tucker and Benjamin, both in their mid-20s - tried their luck at the Sands casino while Marilyn Quayle visited the hotel spa.

The former vice-president, 58, now chairs private equities firm Cerberus Global Investments. His Macau trip was 'purely a vacation', said a source who met him. The American Chamber told us he would be in Hong Kong today, though he has kept the nature of his visit very hush-hush.
