A bit hard to get here on your own, since the public transportation in Thailand is somewhat not so friendly. But the temple itself is beautiful with the big stupa in the middle. Also, you could join the Buddhist practice inside too.

This is by far the largest Buddhist construction in Thailand and is the tallest in the world. It is centrally located in Nakhon Pathom Thailand and well worth the trip from Bangkok (take Microbus to end of line, then take river or motorcycle taxi)
