That's fine, but I think you might be bored after 3 days in Hong Kong. There's not too much to do there that is unique to Hong Kong if you keep kosher. There are a lot of really pretty things outside of the city, but I don't know how unique they are to Hong Kong itself. Sometimes people consider going to Macau, but I personally do not find it worth the time since I don't gamble.
I will be there for 36 hours

Ok, perfect. I'll see if you have a Chinese visa in a little bit more time, and you were very interested in cheap electronics. For knock-off of brand name items, you might want to check out taking the train to Shenzhen. You will need a regular Chinese visa to visit though.
I am not planning on getting a visa

It often takes more than 3 days to make a suit. It's possible to do it in two days, but still unlikely. I would allow at least five days to get it done properly, depending on how busy they are. You're going to need to go in for at least one fitting before the suit is actually fully made,  so you need to plan for that. If they're not that busy you could be less. If you want to do other things in Hong Kong besides getting a suit made, checkout Victoria Peak, Lantau Island, or the many hikes that exist north of the city.
Ok great, thanks! Not looking for a suit in HK, just looking for activities.

Most Halong Bay cruises pick you up from the old city in Hanoi.
the cruises are the activities with whatever else they offer (kayaking, fishing etc)
Is there anything to do in Halong bay other then cruises?

Sure.
When we were there, we got a driver to drive us all day for about $20 which included gas and everything.
We went to a whole bunch of places (Snakes, Crocs, Tigers, etc') and had the driver wait for us outside while we went inside. He had a chart with all the animal pictures, we pointed to which animals we wanted to see and he took us there.
Do you have the drivers contact info?

I have been speaking to people who told me to book everything with this guy who works next to the chabad in chaing mai called Israel 699

Likely headed to Vietnam in the next few weeks. Will probably be there for 7-8 days and split my time between Phu Quoc at the JW or IHG (though I heard JW is awesome) and Hanoi and doing an overnight cruise of HaLong Bay.  If I can fit it in, I'd love to do some caving (I'd obv love to do Son Doong, but they have no availability for my dates, aside from the fact that it coss $3K PP, but I'm seeing if we can fit in Hang En cave, for a much more reasonable $330 PP).

Any recommendations for private Ha Long Bay overnight boat tours?

Any other recommendations?

How would you be traveling between phu quoc, the caves, and hanoi? I am trying to plan 7 days into and out of hanoi airport so I would love to hear what you have planned there
