First and foremost... remember to bring your wife. ;)

Remember to enjoy the trip more... Don't turn it into a photo-shoot which might anger the new woman of the house.

And leave the 100-400 at home...

Firstly congrats on your honeymoon ;) .. think you may like to skip the 100-400 unless you have intention for birding/wildlife.

Agreed with DD123. Since its a tour group also, you might not have time to deploy the tripod. It depends on how familiar you are with your set up and ur itinerary. Your flash is really optional. Since you have your 7D flash, its basically good enough to get exposed shots but if you are going for the more artistic feel, or think you want to manipulate the light just a little more, take the flash too.

I suggest that you just bring your 18-200mm and maybe your flash. Enjoy the trip with your wife. Being a guided tour can be quite restrictive for shooting. I just went taiwan in january with my parents and I had to shoot what I wanted fast (meaning getting off the bus fast....quickly deploy tripod.....look &wait for good spot among many many tourists sometimes....and when u just finished and satisfied...time to go back to bus....) so...just relax and enjoy the trip.

Probably won't have time for birding. Wanted to bring so as just in case can take a few quick snap of bird that I can't find in Singapore. But wife screaming at me for bring so much equipment onboard lol. I'm sure I'll regret for not bring 100-400.

Is it very lame to setup tripod for shooting whereby other tourist busy looking around?would they laugh at me? This oncoming trip is a 8 days tour as I can see from the schedule it's might be a very tiring trip. Hopefully I got some spare time to manage my wife and sufficient time for me to shoot a little while more.

First and foremost... remember to bring your wife. ;)

Keke haven't go only discuss with wife what photography equipment to bring already got blasted &+^#*< out loud in my ear while driving. You go there to shoot or holiday blablablabla......

body with 18-200 is enough (ok MAYBE a flash) ..... i would leave the tripod at home if u intend to do self-portraits with wife (just get someone else to shoot you 2)

Just enjoy , shoot when you can , dont push it and do a seperate photo-dedicated trip some other time ......... you want a long happy marriage

You might also end up pissing off alot of fellow non-photog tour group travellers if you get too 'deep' into shooting ........... almost always you will tend to be one of the lagging last few back on the coach while everyone waits for you to grab that 'one last shot' .... u might find it cute or OK but others will not
