Rainbow village in Taiwan

We took advantage of visiting Rainbow village to take our wedding photo

In Taichung – Taiwan, there is a small village called “Rainbow Village”, which makes it so called?

The formation of Rainbow Village

Nestled in the magnificent city of Taichung, Rainbow village was originally built as a temporary residence for soldiers the late 1940s and 1950s. However, after liberation, these soldiers chose this place to be their houses.

With the desire of bringing a youthful color to this village and encourage the spirit of themselves- those who stay in this place, they began painting the walls of the village with pictures and, even pictures imitating famous works. It takes about 2 years for them to complete panting those houses.

They paint wherever possible, which is in the wall of houses or fences around the village, even under the street. They painted manga, animal, doll, airplane, or whatever is closest in everyday life.

Enjoy Rainbow village

Rainbow Village is essentially just a big house, including a few small houses for people to live in, so visitors can only take 15-20 minutes to explore all of this place. And the fee to get to this village is completely free.
