Or i keep the b1b2 and apply for normal tourist visa?
The B1-B2 visa has two components, B-1 for "business" visits and. B-2 for "pleasure, tourism or medical
treatment". The latter is what you use for a holiday, so you do not need another visa.
By the way, I am told that even if your passport is eligible for visa waiver now that you have a valid visa you should fill in the I-94 and use the visa (not the Visa Waiver Program) to enter. Those guys can get nasty when you go on vacation
or business and try to enter under the VWP when you have a B1-B2 visa in the same or another passport. Do not ask me how I learned that, it just made for a bad day in Miami!
