    Firstly, 'worth seeing' is two words, so you can't just make an adjective out of it.
    This is a place worth seeing.
    means: This is a place [which is] worth seeing.
    This construction happens a lot in English. It's a pattern worth learning.

    It depends on the situation. What are you thanking your boss for?
