I've found 20 villages within 2000 blocks of 0/0 and 5 desert temples. There is a lot of desert and acacia biomes including some cool mega acacia mountains. I found 2 more villages while looking for the woodland mansion which is some 7000 blocks to the north west.
The map is made with a program called Amidst.
It displays an accurate biome map and displays MOST villages and other structures defined by the world seed except for Mansions currently.

You can use it's random seed function to quickly search for a world that has the biomes/structures you like close to spawn.
