If it is a choice then I'd pick the 18-135 for versatility. Sometimes it is not possible to position yourself such that you'll get your shots at that fixed focal length (e.g in a constrained environment). The 50 would be a good choice in low light, but usually in tours seldom you'll find yourself in such a position.
If possible, bring both. The 50 is extremely lightweight and almost negligible in presence. ^^
Went for a 13 day trip (in fact only 10 days minus the air flights). One of the worst thing that can happen is when you are already short of time due to sardine packed events and lots of pple waiting to take the 1 shot with the statue or monument and right after those shots you will have to depart from that place (not much time to re-shoot).

F8-F11 might be quite hard to shoot without a tripod. Without flash, you need to shoot at pretty low shutter speed or pretty high ISO.
If you find that bringing two lenses are heavy and will potentially weigh you down, you'll be glad to know that the 50mm is cheap enough to get rid of I.e. Dump into the ocean at anytime along the way. so no worries!
It is very doable if it is bright and sunny. But landscape photos during that timing is not as breathtaking as those during golden light.Originally Posted by Cowseye
Wow.. I didnt know my thread could receive so many replies o.O
Well, I do have a tripod aldr, a lousy one albeit.
I just came back from a photography shoot at a garden/park this morning. Find that I didn't really need a tripod as it was bright and sunny.
Most shots were taken between ISO 100-400.
