Indonesian rainbow village Kampung Pelangi
In fact, color can affect not only the fate of a single person, but also the whole village. An amazing story, in particular, happened in the usual Indonesian village of Wonosari, whose inhabitants once chose life in color. Traditionally, any Indonesian village looks like this – houses of dirty white or gray color with equally brown roofs. However, after the houses in the village were repainted in bright colors, they had to rename the village itself. That is, Kampung Wonosari became Kampung Pelangi, which literally means “Rainbow Village”. Indeed, all 232 houses changed their colors – into bright red, blue, yellow, green, pink, and orange. The village became iridescent!
In addition, bright drawings and patterns adorn most of the rainbow houses. Meanwhile, the transformation of the village became possible thanks to the government’s program to attract tourists. And of course, thanks to $ 22,000 spent on repainting. And apparently, it really worked!
By the way, thanks to the color, the village in a moment became one of the most attractive places for the Instagram users. Undoubtedly, color matters, and the inhabitants of the rainbow village know this not by hearsay.
According to press, one day a middle school Principal noticed his hometown was in dire need of change. So, he asked the government to sponsor him around $22,000 for repainting more than 230 houses.
Meanwhile, Kampung Pelangi is not the only village in Indonesia painted in rainbow colors. Other villages also followed the successful experience to attract tourists. However, no doubt, Pelanga is the first and most colorful. Looking at such beauty, the mood simply can not help but rise. And for sure, the level of positive among local residents rise sharply after the iridescent transformation.
