The small town of Kampung Pelangi in Semarang, Indonesia, is being transformed into a rainbow tourist attraction. The government put tens of thousands of dollars into the project in an effort to make the village a place that visitors would flock to, therefore boosting the economy. The Indonesian Builders Association also helped by providing paint and hiring workers. It's only been a month since the project has been completed, but the country already considers it a huge success. People from all over the world are coming to see the vibrant area.
The town has also started selling food and souvenirs to travellers. Not only is this project great for the economy, but it is also a wonderful example of a community coming together to make a difference. Many locals participated in making this project come to life. Because of the teamwork, their goal was completed efficiently. According to Lonely Planet, residents of Kampung Pelangi are "thrilled" with the results. Not only is this an effort to bring money to the country, but it also aims to improve the quality of life for the people living in town. Take a look at some of the spectacular photos.
