If your favorite level in Mario Kart is rainbow road, then boy, do I have a village to show you.

This is Kampung Pelangi. It means 'Rainbow Village.' And every single one of the buildings is decked out in a variety of bold colors.

With only $22,000 dollars, the town formerly known as Kampung Wonosari, was transformed into the Rainbow Village.

It quickly became an Instagrammable tourist destination. I mean, who wouldn't want to take photos in a place that screams fun nearly everywhere you look?

The makeover has given citizens of the village hope for a brighter future, too.

Slamet Widodo, principal of a high school located in the Rainbow Village, told the Jakarata Post that he hopes Kampung Pelangi will become the "biggest" colorful city in all of Indonesia.

Pelangi isn't the only town in Indonesia that's received a colorful makeover.

Other towns have received the rainbow treatment, or similarly visually stunning overhauls, to attract tourists.

People really do seem to enjoy the newly designed villages, too. There are tons of photos on Instagram repping Pelangi and other colorful towns.
