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

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

Not really a cashew factory but more like a shopfront with 2 workers cracking cashew nuts upfront. Cashews were a little small and not as big as the ones i bought in Bangkok but still they taste good. Sales personnel were a little pushy for...More

From what I saw there, you just turn up. It’s just more visitors for the hard sell. It’s supposed to be a factory, but it’s really a shop selling cashews, there is very little manufacturing to view.
