Gone are those days when slums and villages were boring and ugly. Kampung Pelangi, a small village in Indonesia, is setting examples with its unique yet beautiful charm.


This village has been drastically changed into a big canvas with huge bright colours and whimsical designs.


Kampung Pelangi, which means Rainbow Village, is located in the city of Semarang in Central Java. The village features over 232 brightly-colored homes located in South Semarang’s hillside Wonosari Village.


The Central Java community spent over $22k on this spectacular new makeover. The whole idea was given by the 54-year-old community leader and high school Principal Slamet Widodo after he noticed a stark contrast between the main business area and the housing behind it.


This magnificent village is becoming a tourist attraction and social media freaks are keeping no stone unturned to highlight its beautiful aura on the internet.
