It is a shop. Ok, you can taste the many different cashew nut varieties, everyone sticks their fingers in the pot to take the nuts, not very hygienic :-( They sell the nuts very expensive. Otherwise there is not much to see. A waste of...More

We visited the Cashew Nut Factory on our way to another activity and found it very worthwhile. It was interesting to see the process and hear about the cashew growing process. There are many flavoured cashews to taste as well as lots of dried fruits....More

A must to visit while in Phuket at $0 entrance fee! Not a huge factory anymore, but you can see experienced hands shelling the nuts which is interesting. The shop is huge and offers several flavours of nuts, dehydrated fruit and many souvenirs. All ok...More

This is a magical spot tucked onto a steep hillside at the end of the road turning off the main drag, just south of the lookout point overlooking Kata Noi, Kata and Karon beaches. It is easy to access, but it takes you right away...More

Thoroughly enjoyed sampling the various flavours of cashews.Clean, appealing shop. Interesting to see how cashews were removed from their shells. Would have liked to have seen more about the roasting/ flavouring process. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

We had hired a driver for the day to visit many places in Phuket and the cashew factory was one stop for us. You don't really see anything of the factory side of things, but as a 'tourist trap' for purchasing of cashews, it works!...More
