The town of Kampung Pelangi, in Randusari in south Semarang, Indonesia got the chance to give itself a makeover and went with a very bold color scheme. They were given a government bid for the project and instructed to paint 223 homes in a minimum of three colors each.
They went above that however and also painted walls and benches. The project was given a budget of 300 million Rp and also got some help from the Indonesian Builders Association in Semarang. Even the Mayor Hendrar Prihadi helped out.
The result of the group project is a very colorful place, with the intentions of bringing more
tourists to the area for photo opps.
Another Indonesian town 240 miles in Kampung Wisata Jodipan, Malang also recently finished a similarly colorful beautification project.
