Escape is real.

Greetings, friend!
Are you ready for adventure and new discoveries? We are opening the second season of #smenathai on the tropical island of Koh Phangan.

A newly built house for a new Station in a quiet yoga district, friends with whom you are don't know yet, insights and all other values of Smena community are waiting for you.

Do you think, that in paradise you can't work productively? We will convince you, that you can!
Over the past ten years, the island has become a mecca for those who choose freedom, success and development. These people create the local community. We offer you to become part of it, to live as a local and to make finally up your mind — do I want to stay on the island?
"You can live in a dream, and moreover, develop and grow, being an absolutely happy person. There are a lot of plans and ideas in my head, a lot of interesting new projects in the mail, waiting for me to take them into my own hands."
"Since I have ceased to be 14 years old, I always dreamed of turning the time back. To be back in the children's camp. Where are friends, play and fall in love, if not every day, then every other day. And Shift didn't fulfill this naive dream. This project did a lot more. This children's camp for adults gave me the kind of adventure that I had been looking for a long time."
"That feeling when you found the perfect workplace, and workday will end when you see the sun set in the sea.
Magical. That's what my days at Smena were like last year in Thailand and I wish I could come back again this year."
