The 5th Southeast Asian Peninsular Games were held in Rangoonmarker, Burmamarker from 6 December - 13 December 1969. Vietnam had reluctantly declined to host this edition because of the Vietnam War. Singapore, the youngest member of the SEAP Games Federation at the time, suggested in this edition of the games to change the name of the sports festival to the South-East Asia Games. Although it was not officially stated, the inclusion of the Philippinesmarker and Indonesiamarker in the expanded federation was to greatly help alleviate the hosting problems, as well as to set higher and more competitive standards in the games. After hosting the 5th edition, Burma declined hosting succeeding games due to lack of financial capability.
