I vote for tour
Instead of buying an expensive SLR body, I prefer to carry two smaller bodies(one second hand as backup) together a wide angle prime (For Less barrel distortion), 50mm prime (For low light handheld), 80-200mm (Cheap and small). Even if you kenna robbed, it would only cost you below S$1500 for the above setup. A tripod may be optional, but it is really inconvenient.
I think you'd be more disappointed if you spend all the money on an expensive package. I would rather spend the necessary on flight only and go for a longer free and easy tour. I would like to walk the slump and rural parts of a city instead of the guide bringing you to tourist attractions, jewellery shops....
