After a low at Diwali, Select Citywalk’s CEO Rajiv Duggal says that people are looking forward to shopping during this Christmas season. “I think Diwali was so sad because of the share market crashing and sentiments were down. Now I see with a vengeance people coming to shop for Christmas", he says.

A gingerbread house modeled after a 12th century Danish church adorns the lobby of the Shangri-la Hotel. It is meant to bring a feeling of peace and tranquility to its patrons. Made up of 9,253 gingerbread cookies with coconut flakes to give the effect of snow, the gingerbread house took 2 chefs working 12-14 hours- a-day an entire week to make and is completely edible.

In addition, Shangri-la is preparing 4 different flavors of Yule logs including tiramisu, passion fruit, fresh berry, and chocolate crunch.
