Summer is almost here and is it even complete without a vacay with the fam? From hill stations to beaches to historic places, our bucket list keeps on changing with every passing year, at least mine does. So, keeping this in mind, I thought it would be fun to visit the most colourful places that exist in the world. While it was difficult to choose from a lot of beautiful locations, I narrowed down to five of the best ones that took control of my heart’s wheel. Check ’em out!

1. Rainbow Village, Taiwan

The moment you step into the Rainbow Village, you’ll be welcomed with cutesy paintings of animals, people and flowers on vibrant walls. What is interesting is how this village was saved from the developers’ attempts to demolish it. A former soldier, Huang, is the only left resident of this village. And he started painting this colourful artwork on the walls in the beginning of 2010 to ward off the developers—he was 93 years old at the time!

2. Cinque Terre, Italy


The Cinque Terre comprises of five small villages, situated along the coast of the Italian Riviera. The buildings here are colourful, bright and soothingly vibrant. The villages here are connected by footpaths, that many tourists choose to hike through.

3. Rainbow Mountain, Peru

Vinicunca, also known as Mountain of Seven Colours has the most beautiful shades of pink, purple, blue, orange, yellow, green and grey covering all of it like artwork. Also, to reach here it will take about six to seven days of trekking through some of the most gorgeous turquoise lakes and glaciers.

4. Grand Prismatic Spring, US

This Grand Prismatic Spring is the largest hot spring in the US. And as per the Yellowstone National Park website, this spring is supposed to be deeper than a 10-floor building and longer than a football field.

5. Farm Tomita, Japan

This farm is situated in Hokkaido, Japan and is one of the most popular tourist attractions there. Be sure to find a perfect colour play of fields with lavender, poppies, marigolds, Japanese roses, and many other flowers. Apart from witnessing this beautiful landscape firsthand, you can also participate in a perfume workshop, go shopping, or even get that Instagram-worthy picture while eating lavender ice cream here.
