21 Most Colorful Cities in the World

My eyes start to twinkle uncontrollably when I see lots of pretty colors, particularly in architecture. Bright, fun colors can literally transform an ordinary city into something that will have Instagrammers dying to capture on camera. In fact, Instagram was my inspiration for discovering some of the most colorful cities in the world. Here are some vibrant places whose fun pops of color have become signature to their charm, character, and local cultural vibes.
