Slum on Java Island become social media hit after its homes were rainbow-painted

Slum on Java Island become social media hit after its homes were rainbow-painted A slum area on Indonesia's Java Island has become an unlikely tourist attraction, as well as a social media hit, after its homes were painted vivid colors to transform the district into what is now being called "Kampung Pelangi" ("Rainbow Village").

This is reported by Reuters.

The poor hill-side area received a month-long facelift costing 300 million rupiah ($22,500) and paid for by the local government in a bid to rejuvenate this part of Semarang, a town 450 km (280 miles) east of the capital Jakarta.

Visitors have been flocking to the village to take photographs and pose for "selfies" next to the brightly colored homes.
