Japanese macaques nap in the shade to avoid sunshine at a Tokyo zoo while people crowd in a swimming pool to escape the summer heat in South Korea. Monsoon rains and a typhoon affected other Asian countries, with flooding threatening to inundate parts of Hanoi, Vietnam.

In other images from the Asia-Pacific region this week, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen holds a ballot before voting in the election that returned him to office for another five-year term.
