You can travel by high speed catamaran from Chumporn (not far from Hua Hin) to Koh Samui/Koh Phangan/Koh Tao.
Mr. Roong charges 4000B roundtrip from BKK airport. Excellent service. Waited for us at the airport for 1.5hr, still all smiles and no complaints.
Buses leave frequently from Bangkok's Southern Bus Station, roughly every 45 minutes. The journey takes around 3 hours, and costs about 125 baht ($3).
The train from Bkk to Hua Hin is to me the most enjoyable way to reach that town.
Take the train in Bkk, 2d class fan and I really enjoy the trip.

Maybe you won't take a train to Huahin or back to Bangkok. But the Huahin Station itself is worth to take a look:-) nice building
