Dear Eline en Esra,
Your beetle is a Longhorned Borer Beetle in the family Cerambycidae, and just yesterday we spent about an hour attempting to identify another member of the family from Thailand,
Cyriopalus wallacei, so we knew the best place to start searching for the identity of your individual.  We went straight to the Worldwide Cerambycoidea Photo Gallery and filtered individuals from Thailand, and then on page 3 we found the Common Tuft Bearing Longhorn, Aristobia horridula.
