As someone famous said, 'the best camera is the one you have on you.' I shoot with my Pixel 3XL or iPhone most of the time. No, the photographs on this site are taken with a DSLR. But, unless you don't mind carrying around a bulky DSLR, you are better off with a non-DSLR camera. So, when I take pleasure trips, I take my Sony A6000 with me. It is less bulky, attracts less attention and takes decent pictures. It is a mirrorless camera. Most manufacturers make one. Based on my research, I found that the A6000 is the single camera body for which the maximum number of lenses are available - of any camera ever manufactured. So, that is why I am recommending that you build your system around it or its later generation model. I researched them early 2017 when I was getting ready to take a 5 week trip to India and Paris and decided on the Sony A6000 with the kit lens of 16-50. Note that it is not the latest and greatest. It was released on February 12, 2014 so as of June 2019, it is over 5 years old!
Why would I recommend something 5 years old especially, given that technology changes so much? Cost. Features. Aftermarket accessories available. Relatively bug free. So many owners out there that you can easily find an answer to anything related to the camera. So, buy yours here. Generally speaking, I prefer buying the camera body separately from the lens so that I can buy the specific lens for specify type of photography. In this instance, Sony has bundled a pretty decent lens so, am comfortable recommending the kit purchase.
In May of 2019, Sony released an upgrade called the A6400. Sure, if you have the extra money, go for it. Most folks I know will not utilize the full capabilities of a A6000. Remember, my initial recommendation is to still get a Pixel 3XL or Google's latest model or Apple's iPhone.
