Display a city on long click in Android

I am passing data between two activities. I want to do this: when the user long clicks on the map the new InfoActivity window opens, displaying latitude, longitude and the city where the longclick was made.

I already passed lat and long, but got stuck with the city part.

public void onMapLongClick(LatLng arg0) {

Intent intent = new Intent(getActivity(), InfoActivity.class);
intent.putExtra("latitude", arg0.latitude);
intent.putExtra("longitude", arg0.longitude);


How would I get the city where the map is long clicked and add pass it to my InfoActivity.

Any help is appreciated :)

How would I get the city where the map is long clicked

Use Geocoder class with arg0 for getting city where the map is long

 Geocoder geocoder = new Geocoder(this, Locale.getDefault());
 List<Address> allAddresses = geocoder.getFromLocation(
                               arg0.latitude, arg0.longitude, 1);

Now get all details from allAddresses which is required for long clicked point.

and add pass it to my InfoActivity
