Ho Chi Minh excursion

I'm about to do a few days in and around Ho Chi Minh city and I am trying to decide on what camera to bring. I'm leaning towards my D50 which would require two lens. My alternative is a D5100. The D50 has been my go to from sand to jungle but the D5100 is lighter and slightly friendlier.
any and all suggestions will be appreciated.

Why not rent a lens that covers your focal length requirements for the D50, unless you need extreme ends of focal length?

Look at the WIKI that keeps track of discounts and coupons for renting equipment. Maybe that can be an option as well.

If you're going to be in a city-scape a good walk around lens is something like an 18-200 or 18-300, and you can can find really good all-in-one lenses that cover that kind of range.
