This village in Indonesia is literally made out of rainbows
Now this is what they call colourful.
Kampung Pelangi, which literally translates to Rainbow Village, has to be one of the most colourful villages in the world, let alone in Indonesia.
The village, which is home to 232 houses, is splashed in a series of bright colours and decorated with murals.
Kampung Pelangi was recently given a government-funded makeover in a bid to make it more tourist-friendly — and it looks like it’s working.
The government decided that the town, formerly called Kampung Wonosari, needed a $22,000 makeover in order to raise it from its previous slum slatus.
The village isn’t the first in Indonesia to have gone technicolour.
Pelangi’s project was inspired by other smaller scale villages in Indonesia like Kampung Kali Code in Yogyakarta, and Kampung Tridi in Malang, that were given a fresh coat of paint.
“Hopefully Kampung Pelangi will be the biggest [colourful city] in Indonesia,” said Slamet Widodo, a principal of a high school in Kampung Pelangi, who first initiated the project.
From the looks of it, we’re pretty sure it will be.
