The two famous hashtags that have been flooding social media for a couple of years now, #ThisIsEgypt and #RoamEgypt, were originally created by the innovative Taimour Othman. The photography guru’s pictures of Egypt have attracted loads of followers, leading to the adoption of Taimour’s hashtag and photos by the Ministry of Tourism in Egypt. The ministry started the campaign #ThisIsEgypt with Taimour’s photos to invite people to experience the beauty of Egypt. The campaign was an enormous success and motivated both locals and tourists to #RoamEgypt.
