Great pictures zaidirazak of a Golden-spotted Tiger Beetle, thank you for posting.
I still think it more likely that this is a bug.
Carabidae, Cicindeliinae, Cicindellini, most probably Cicindela (Cosmodela) aurulenta. Cosmodela is the subgenus, so Cicindela aurulenta would also be OK.http://www.samuibutterflies.com/02_image...http://eol.org/pages/3463491/overview
It is a tiger beetle...
That looks like it might be a bug. I can confirm with 90% certainty that it belongs to the bug species.
