Like any day of the week, I scroll through my alternating social media feeds after long days at work for some low-key entertainment. Some accounts and hashtags I am more keen on following than others, including one hashtag in particular, the famous and ever growing #ThisIsEgypt hashtag. #ThisIsEgypt is more than just a hashtag, it is a community and a platform for anyone, Egyptian and non-Egyptian, who chooses to see the beauty in Egypt. Professional or amateur photographers, writers, artists, or just average Instagram users who like to document their daily lives, the hashtag has become a gallery and a form of expression. An expression of gratitude, pride and love towards the country, showcasing it’s ethnic beauty and hidden gems. This hashtag has been existing for a while, but it hasn’t perished yet. On the contrary, more and more content is being shared with this hashtag on a daily basis, and they are quite spectacular.
Wanting to stay updated, I recently followed the hashtag to spot out the new images that are being created and captured. Check them out below.
The hashtag takes you to different places around Egypt, and captures many moments that are now forever saved in a beautiful gallery. Check the hashtag frequently, and you won’t be able to help but fall in love with the scenery.
