A town in Indonesia is painting the town red…and pink, green, blue and yellow. Kampung Pelangi — also known as the “Rainbow Village” — is the newest hotspot to blow up on Instagram. The town, which is located in Randusari, Indonesia, has become a must-see (and post) locale ever since undergoing an extreme makeover.
Last month, the village was awarded about $22,000 by the local council committee to give the small town a technicolor makeover with the hopes of drawing in more tourists. From afar, the village looks like a rainbow dream but for explorers who adventure into the city, art can be found around every corner.
Murals are all around the city featuring designs like angel wings, dinosaurs, geometric shapes and men walking in technicolor rain. The effort put in by the community to transform the village seems to be paying off. The vibrant village has been trending on social media as Instagram savvy travelers rush to get the perfect shot.
The town, which used to known as a slum, has completely turned around with more clean-up and renovations set for the future.
