Η Ανατολή είναι Κόκκινη. :)

No point for "China is in the orient"?

Report it. It is correct, so it should be accepted

This must be how the historical region of Anatolia gets its name as it is east if Greece?

It's actually Greece-centric. It's the Greek course and most sentences are written from the Greek perspective. ;)

"To the East" should be accepted, I think.

The different thing about "to the east" is that you need to ask, "to the east of what?". For example, China is to the west of Japan. That means that you need a fixed reference point. ;)

In the east=Στην ανατολή

To the east=Στα ανατολικά
