  1. get free data of all large cities and corresponding countries with Lat Long values from lets say http://www.geonames.org/export/
  2. import into your database
  3. when user clicks, query this database for nearest place passing in Lat Long and doing the radius sql calc
  4. Thats your user click location by nearest city

hope this helps
