We did this trip in conjunction with Big Buddha. The buildings are incredible and were quiet when we were there, which added to the feeling of peace about the place. A long drive in traffic from the west coast resorts .

Its definitely worth a visit as you can see few different Buddhist temples. Its busy but never crowded so you can watch and sightsee all of them without rush

Most temples will be happy to arrange blessings so better choose one close to where you are getting married. Cost can go from 5000+ Thai baht
