Objectives Guide
Go to Kara Kara Bazaar
Go to Kara Kara Bazaar to gather info on the man who snuck into Gerudo Town.

Go Sand-Seal Surfing
Optional: To the left the the town entrance are sand seals which you can ride to get to places fast.

Like horses, you need to sneak up on them before you can use them for a ride. Note that a shield is required to sand-seal surf.

You can talk to Frelly to learn more about sand-seal surfing.
Climb Up to the Inn's Roof at Daytime
You can ask around to learn that a Hylian Vai (or female) has been hanging around on the roof of the inn during the day.

During daytime, climb up to the top of the inn to find a woman dressed in pink.
Tip: If it is nighttime, you can use the campfire outside to rest and skip the time.

Purchase the Gerudo Armor Set

Talk to Vilia
Approach the girl, and talk to her. She will offer to sell you the Gerudo set, but only if you tell her that she is beautiful.
Purchase the Gerudo Set
Purchase the Gerudo set for 600 Rupees. If you are low on cash, you can go down and sell materials to the shopkeeper or Beedle.

The armor set will automatically give you a Heat-Resistant bonus, so you do not have to worry about the harsh heat anymore.

Sneak Into Gerudo Town

Enter the Town
While you are weraing the set, you can freely enter the town with no problem.

Do not remove any Gerudo clothing while you are inside the town, or you will be kicked out.
