Cities aren’t like people; they live on and on, even though their reason for being where they are has gone downriver and out to sea. 

No matter how ardent a traveller you are, there is always room to explore more. Almost all of us seek refuge from the madness of modern, urban life and wish to settle in a place which is calm and slightly slow-paced. We travel miles to find that perfect place, often going abroad to seek peace and solace. However, sometimes, paradise is right in our own neighbourhood.

When I came across the following photographs, I was pleasantly surprised to know that this beautiful city was so close by!

Traversing this gorgeous water body would be a dream come true!

And this magnificent city. It's called Thane!

This doesn't look like India, does it? Watch this video and be amazed.

Thane, apart from being a plush city with numerous lakes, is also on its path to commercial development. It has already made it to the list of potential smart cities in India.

Thane is, certainly, the next cool place to be in! Check out TotallyThane.com to know more.
