Thank you so much for visiting my site! My name is Kamsan (San). I am a licensed tour guide for the Angkor Archaeological Park and other tourism sites around Cambodia for almost 10 years. I have designed package tours with the needs of a large variety of travelers in mind. We try to provide exciting and amazing tours for independent adventurers. My current job is amazing because I am able to share the rich-cultural heritages to the world.
I was born in 1972 during the war. Most parts of Cambodia were bombed killing so many people. When I was just 3 years old, the Khmer Rouge (Known as Killing Field) started to control Cambodia from 1975 to 1979. I was dying of hunger like millions of other people as well. Two of my brothers were killed during the Khmer Rouge time. After the Khmer Rouge, Cambodia was controlled by Communists. In 1982, I started my schooling under a tree. I learned how to write my first Cambodian ABC in the sand on the ground because of chalk, blackboards, books, pens & pencils were not available. I started learning English when I was 16 years old in my homeland. My Cambodian English teacher, classmates and I were arrested because we were not allowed to learn English. Life was a struggle! When I was a student, I always did some jobs to support my family as well as my studies! After my schooling, I went to the rice fields to help my parents. Later on, I worked as a cake seller by selling many kinds of cakes from one village to another. When I moved to Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia, to pursue my university studies, I started teaching English. Not only could I could improve my English a lot because of teaching, but I was able to earn enough to support my studies! I spent weekend time voluntarily teaching computer lessons to the poor/orphans at The Khmer Association. As soon as I finished my university, I got a job as Sponsorship Assistant for World Vision – Cambodia, then I became the Building Relations Manager for Plan International. From 2005 to now, I’ve been a tour guide.
I am married with 3 children. They are Vorak (13), Sreyneath 11) and Sreypov (8). Because of your support, they all can go to English class now. I speak English with them at home so their English is improving quickly. I am very proud of them.
