Kampung Pelangi, an Indonesian village located in Randusari in South Semarang, just underwent a very colorful makeover. The local government invested Rp 300 million (about $23,000) to paint 223 buildings in a rainbow of colors in hopes that it would turn their town into a tourist attraction—and according to Instagram, so far they’ve succeeded.

As more people venture to their village, residents are also improving their local economy by selling souvenirs and food to tourists. The town now plans on investing a total of Rp 2 billion (about $31,031,860) into the revival, which will include painting a total of 390 houses and cleaning the local river.
