Drones soar over South Korea's "Purple Islands"

Elderly women dressed in purple prune lavender fields, the roofs of the houses they live in are different shades of violet as are the roads and bridges.

Inspired by the native balloon flower, residents of the Banwol and Bakji Islands, known as the 'Purple Islands', in southwest Korea have transformed their towns into a tourist attraction.

Visitors who adhere to the colour theme are allowed free entry to the islands and can walk on the three purple footbridges connecting the two islands to the larger one nearby and enjoy the purple sunset and lights that illuminate the night.
