iPhone is enough for your travel photography if you really know how to use it for the purpose. It has tons of features. It’s all about making the right click at the right time, with a few right settings. Burst photos is a feature given by Apple in iPhone 5S. Using burst mode, you can take 10 frames per second photos of a shot so that you could select the best amongst them. Burst mode is the best if you want to capture something that is moving, like a child, an animal in the wild etc. You can also use the burst mode if you are moving and have to capture a still place.
