1Hidden ? There is not so much intzerresting things hidden in Thailand but there are curiositiées or places that are only known by Thailand lovers.
For me the Mae Klong Railway market for instance is something funny to see. Or places like Si Satchanalai( not for from Sukhothai but very few people go there ) or Prachuap Khiri Khan for its atmosphere and night market on the sea front. There is also a suprising Old cars museum in the the South of Bangkok.
But I don't know what kind of things you are looking for...

2Here's some questions for your question:
1) where in Thailand are you looking at traveling ? no point recommending places in the south if you are north or vice-versa...
2) how long do you have to spend there ?
For me, while not hidden treasures, they are still treasured by me:
a) Wat Arun - climb up to the top of the temple (very steep) and take in the vista below
b) the old gaol - in which you can go through the now unused cells and see how prisoners were tortured in the past and, in the guards offices, you can see the current means of execution (lethal injection). morbid but fascinating.
c) the snake farm in Henri Dunant Rd. go during the time of the snake handling - I think it's around 12pm or 1pm
d) I was at the ocean world last year - certainly interesting (albeit a bit pricey). if you have the chance, do the deep dive into the shark tank.
e) in Ayuthyya, there's a number of ancient temples which are not heavily touristed - I was there just as the floods were hitting the region last year - first time back in >30 years - lots of changes but it's still worth visiting.
