At Wat Phra Mahthat in Ayutthaya, you can see a Buddha head in a tree among the ruins of many temples. Tourists are encouraged to ride elephants around the city, but please don't take part as elephants actually have very weak spines and suffer painful back injuries as a result of this practice.
This temple has recently changed its name to Mahapanya Vidayalai as it is now a Buddhist university. It's great for photos with rows of monk statues which contain the ashes of deceased people, a huge Buddha statue, and a 9 storey pagoda which you can climb.
Also known as the Stainless Steel temple, this is actually one of my favourite temples in Thailand. I went there around lunch time and had the whole place to myself. It's on the edge of the city up in the mountains so it's quite quiet and peaceful. The temple is covered in wind chimes and has a circular design with numerous portholes and 2 spiral staircases.
One of the top destinations around Krabi. You can get here by boat from Ao Nang.
Built in the 15th century, this is a temple in the historic centre of Chiang Mai.
Wat Rong Khun is a modern, privately owned, art exhibit in the style of a Buddhist temple in Chiang Rai.
