Vietnam travel kit advise

I'll be traveling to Vietnam next week with about 8 days in Hanoi for a conference and 3 days in and around Halong bay.

From what I gather, August in Hanoi may be quite wet.

I'm definitely bringing my gh4 and tentatively identified four lenses to bring along

  1. Lumix 20/1.7
  2. Lumix 12-35/2.8
  3. Lumix 35-100/2.8
  4. Lumix 7-14/4

Given the location and weather, should I consider bringing longer zooms like the 45-200 or 100-300? I've also got the Zuiko 45/1.8 and four thirds 25/1.4 (heavy!) available.

When I went to Kyoto a couple of years ago, I found the 20/1.7, 7-14/4, 14-45 great with a panny G1 in the hazy but dry conditions with only a sprinkling of shots with the 45-200.

Any advise would be appreciated
