Which lenses for trip to China


I have a T2i with:

  • Canon 15-85 IS

  • Sigma 30mm 1.4

  • Tamron 70-300 VC

I plan to make trip to China which will include Yunnan and Hunan (wide landscapes, temples, mountains) and Hong Kong (street photography, people, "the Peak", Lantau).

Now I am traveling with kids and I have to be sure not to bring to much. I know that question came a thousand times but has anyone suggestions for me.

I mean all three lenses are not lightweights and in a big with the camera it is a nice weight.

I am thinking the 15-85 is a must, but I plan to let either the prime or the Tamron at home (or at least in the hotel in HK - therefore not on the trip to Yunnan/Hunan).
