Today, youth tourism has become one of the fastest growing segments of international tourism accounting for more than 20% of the one billion tourists traveling around the world every year. This growth opens up huge socio-economic opportunities for local communities as young travelers contribute to greater social interaction with the host population and protect the environment. Tourism in Uzbekistan has always attracted people from all over the world. For anyone knowing the country it is easy to understand – bright colors, intricate patterns, rich fragrances and friendly people are waiting for each visitor. This landlocked country in Central Asia offers many different interesting sites that even one person will not be able to explore in his entire life. The paper provides the SWOT analysis of student and youth tourism in Uzbekistan alongside with the analysis of this tourist activity in this country since students and young people, as a rule, are full of ideas and plans, hopes for the future, but are limited by income (money). Nevertheless, it offers significant economic advantages, namely a much longer stay, a consumption pattern similar to locals and increased chances for additional visits.
