The village used to be a “slum” and residents were facing eviction until a local high school principal suggested that it should get a makeover. The Government obliged and invested approximately 300 million Indonesian Rupiah (approximately $22,500 USD) – the result is a rainbow collection of houses, bridges and buildings.

Slamet Widodo, a 54-year-old high school principal came up with the idea to paint the town after being inspired by other Asian areas that had been revamped in a similar fashion. “The idea to create Kampung Pelangi came after we saw the beauty of Kampung Warna-warni and Kampung Tridi in Malang, and later Kampung Kali Code in Yogyakarta,” he said. The project took just over a month to complete and was unveiled at the end of April. Since then, Kampung Pelangi has received widespread attention and has become a popular tourist destination. Photographers just can’t seem to get enough of the sea of bright colours, 3D drawings and beautiful murals splashed all over the village.
