I have actually brought heavier stuffs before, for self drive trips that is.
Easy to pull up alongside and just wander a little further off road, taking my time deploying at a place to setup, deliberate, shoot.
For city and streets shots, I only usually bring two lenses out.
If its a self drive then bringing all the equipment that you have and with the luxury of time to setup and contemplate what and how to shoot is fine. If you are joining a tour group where you can only be there for 20 minutes or so, or if you intend to walk a lot, then bringing everything may not be ideal.
My last trip, all i brought was a body with grip, 17-55mm. Sometimes its a 35mm lens and that is all i have. No need to worry about swapping about lens.
In the end depends on what you are trying to achieve. For versatility, think the 18-200mm range will do just fine for traveling.
Need some advice from experienced photographers here,
I'm planning to go for a 2 weeks backpacking trip to Vietnam, will be traveling from north to south.
