Rainbow Village: Indonesian Government Invests $22,467 To Paint 232 Slum Houses, And Result Is Amazing

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.The government invested $22,467 on the magnificent makeover in a bid to shake off its status as a degraded slum.

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.The project was inspired by at least 3 other towns in the country that adopted similar paint jobs, and has turned at least 232 homes in Kampung Pelangi into works of art.

Tourists have definitely taken early notice of Indonesia’s growing rainbow village trend, and have flocked to them accordingly, including Kampung Pelangi.

The Rainbow Village is becoming a tourist attraction and social media freaks are keeping no stone unturned to highlight its beautiful aura on the internet.
