We just happened on Wat Plai Laem after visiting the Big Buddha (which was amazing). Wat Plai Laem is a treat with many temples and large statues. It is a MUST visit and just a short distance from the Big Buddha.

Do be careful of bird poop on the floor after you...More
This precinct has multiple temples and statues situated on a lake. Temples were beautifully and colourfully decorated and easily accessible. The lake had enormous fish and it was fun to watch them being fed.

It's always best to dress modestly according to Thai expectations when visiting a temple. Females can pack a sarong to put over shorts. Some temples have items available to purchase or borrow. It's considered rude in Thailand to have bare arms even outside the temples. I wouldn't wear any tops that don't at least have a cap sleeve or short sleeve. Thai people are so kind they may not say anything to you, but if you are showing your shoulders, belly, or lots of leg (outside of the beach area) it truly is offensive.
