A few days ago I was approached by gogoflorist.com, a bouquet delivery service company based in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand. They offered me to send a bouquet to someone in Thailand in exchange for a review on my blog; whenever I get the chance to send a bouquet of flowers for free, I’ll take it!
I could select a bouquet valued up to $85, so I hit their website and scrolled through the categories and ended up at the category popular. I decided to go for a classic bouquet of 12 red roses — a statement of love as written in the description — for $79.90 delivery included. A standard price compared to other sites.
I choose to send the flowers to my mother-in-law with a short love greeting, and she received the flowers on the same day. That’s pretty impressive considering she lives in a small village in the middle of nowhere in Krabi Province 1,200 km from Chiang Mai. To be able to do this, they work with florists and contractors in all cities throughout Thailand.
My mother-in-law receiving the roses. It was a bit of driving from Krabi Town which is why they couldn’t deliver the bouquet until 19:00. But the fact that they deliver to any village anywhere in Thailand (except some small islands) is outstanding.
Any cons? They should definitely work on their website and cut the text a bit; people tend to choose companies with modern websites without a lot of text. Simpleness is the key here. Otherwise, everything went just fine, and I recommend sending flowers with gogoflorist.com if you live overseas.
