The 3rd Southeast Asian Peninsular Games were held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 14 December - 21 December 1965. Originally to be hosted by Laos, the third edition of the games was hosted by Malaysia after the former was not able to honour its hosting commitment citing financial difficulties. Two years earlier, the third SEAP Games was cancelled as Cambodia pulled out of hosting the event due to internal strife.
