Cinque Terre, Italy
Cinque Terre, or “Five Lands,” is the name given to not one but five stunning villages perched along the Italian Riviera. Each village has its own character, but they all boast an incredible array of pastel-colored houses. Cinque Terre is situated inside a national park near Tuscany, so cars are a rare sight! Most of the 2.4 million tourists who visit per year arrive by boat. Once they get there, they mainly walk, taking in the sights of the Riviera along the seven-and-a-half-mile hiking trail.

Kampung Pelangi, Indonesia

In mid-2017, the town underwent a major makeover in hopes of drawing more tourists. According to Architectural Digest, every house in the village was required to have no fewer than three colors represented. The endeavor has paid off: tourists have been flocking to the village, and the town hopes to extend the color flood to even more houses in the coming months.
