The Sun Pavilion, covered with clear glass, is an outdoor garden featuring one of the largest collection of cacti and succulent plants in Southeast Asia.

I took a walk through the Sun Pavilion, and the garden was just as amazing as the brochure said. Fans of cacti and succulents will surely love the place - the amazing desert-like landscapes. There are supposedly, over 1,000 desert plants comprising some 100 different species and varieties.

Here are some photos from my visit. Where possible, I have named them. I don't know much about cacti or succulents. Some of the cacti or succulents have information about them, but there are many I couldn't find a sign of.

Some fun facts about Cacti from the Sun Pavilion

Cacti are mostly from the Americas, while succulent Euphorbias come from Africa and Madagascar.
Cacti get their name from the Greek word "kaktos", which means "thistle".
Cacti can survive from 15 to 300 years, depending on the species .
